Challenge #59 - Racing Cars

Can you believe we are up to Challenge #59 for the Lollipop Ladies?  

This fortnight we're getting into the competitive spirit with  Racing Cars!

With the additional challenge of Stripes.

Guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
and our sponsor this fortnight is: Annabelle Stamps *

$10 Voucher (thanks to Andrea).

Remember, there have to be seven (7) entries before the prize can be awarded.

My card for you this fortnight is based on the CAS principle and is stamped straight onto the card, with limited embellishments.  However, please note that my STRIPES are in the ribbon - stripy ribbon!

The images come from the Waltzing Mouse stamp set called Pint Sized Hero's and have been stamped straight onto the white card base.  I have coloured them in a straightforward way (no shading) with the Copics in primary colours.  The ribbon road is from a giveaway, and is also in the primary colours - and has STRIPES!The  top sentiment comes from the WMS set, and the bottom one is from Annabelle Stamps. 

The card base is a commercial one and while it is flat, and smooth, it did not take the Copics well and they are a bit streaky.  I am afraid to add more ink as I think it will flood the back of the card. I wanted to keep it fairly simple to match the child-like drawings - however, I feel I could use it for a child or an adult (or even a teenager!). I love the way the sentiment on the bottom goes up and down as well - adds to the feel of driving. 

Well, now you have seen what I have done - have a go yourself for this challenge - great prize and a chance to be a Guest Designer.  You cannot win if you don't go into it!
