Come and Get it............. are sketchy

Theres a super sketch to follow this week at Come and Get It challenges.. After my card was sooo kindly picked as a top 3 last week :O) I just had to join in again.

I decided it was a perfect sketch to make a birthday card for my grandad, who will be 87 years young... Grandad used to be a bomb aimer in the RAF ( Royal Air Force ) He still has such a love of planes.. This image by Teri at Delicious Doodles was perfect for him.

I coloured the image with Promarkers using 5 warm greys and 3 cool greys.. Yes there is 8 different greys on my card !! I backed the image onto black card. Then onto a blue DP and then again onto blue card before backing it onto my card. I highlighted bits of the plane with my silver markers pen.. I used peel offs to write grandad and i really must practise alittle more in getting them straight LOL.. I suppose it adds to the appeal of the card ;O)

Heres my card for the 'Come Get and Get It' challenges


The photo was a little dark ... Wheres the sunshine when you need it ?  Hope the sun is shining near you :O)
