Open-Minded Crafting Fun #9

Today I am excited to share with you my first DT card for Open-Minded Crafting Fun.

It is a fun, fab challenge blog with lots of great sponsors and a lovely Design Team who have been very welcoming.

The challenge this fortnight is 'Sports or Activities'

I have used an image called 'Dirt Bike Mike' by Kenny K, who is one of the sponsors for this challenge.

This little guy has been coloured with a mix of Copics and Promarkers.  I inked the background a little to give the impression of the bike spitting up dirt and then cut out with a spellbinders die.

I cut a wheel background which is from the SIL store and matted on some bright orange card from the   Papermill.

The Sentiment is by Gingers House and printed onto a Ticket also from the SIL store, which I then painted with water and distress inks to dirty it up a bit.

Our sponsors this fortnight are:-
