Based on inspiration from the talented Paula Dobson, I created this card this afternoon as part of a commissioned order for a friends nephew.

Many of us often struggle with boys and mens cards, and the Need for Speed stamp set is the perfect answer.

It was easy to create a mask of the car, so that I could sponge over the background and foreground to create the effect of a road and some background. I used my White Gel pen to create the lines in the centre of the road. I decided to leave the car white rather than introduce another colour. I love the mix of Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Old Olive.

The card is now on its way to Hull - I hope it is liked by the recipient who celebrates his 14th Birthday at the weekend.
