Southern Girls Challenge 5,Transport

I'm guest Designer at Southern Girl's Challenge Blog this month and this weeks challenge is "Transport". I played around a bit with this Fun Digi Stamp from Digital Delights to make it suit my needs,you can check out the original image Here.

I coloured it using Copics,removed part of the image replacing it with a photo of my Nephew and his best friend,I left the background of the photo as I thought it made it look like view from the back of the bus. I added a steering wheel (the original bus image was left hand drive) and used some stickles and some Dew drops on the lights.

My Nephew is mad on Tortoises so I cut some using a QuicKutz die and added them to an acetate fold down strip to the edge of the crossing.

I sponged a road to the background,masking off areas to leave the white lines. On the base of the card I lined up and raised a white line which serves to stop the back from sliding forward and running over the tortoises lol! The tickets are freebie digi downloads. I coloured up some Peel offs for the Number plate.

I'm going to enter this card for the following challenges:-
Papertake weekly,Penny for the guys,

Paper players 22,Anything goes,
TOSCCB104,Anything goes,

What a wonderful addition to a child's memory box. I'm sure this card will be a part of his memory holdings for years to come. Way to personalize it. You hit the ball out of the park on this one. Very Very Nice.
