The Blue Convertible

Having some great weather very hot, but not humid.  Went to Ikea and purchased a new chair for my craft room.  I share this space with my husband - he has one desk, I have two and a table that pulls out if I need it!  If you purchase anything at Ikea you have to put it together yourself.  My husband uses a walker, but he decided he was going to do the honours of assembling the chair!  Did a mighty fine job with only minimal help from me.  Now I feel like a queen in my new green chair with the high back!

This card is for my oldest son.  He drives a dark blue Convertible in the summer, but light blue is easier to colour!  The image is a rubber stamp from Lili of the Valley.  I coloured the image with Copics and silver pen and used some Glossy accents on the windshield.  Used a brush and Distress Ink on the grass and sky.  Tried to add flying birds to the sky, but the stamp slipped, and the birds went behind the clouds. DP from my stash and sentiment computer generated.

I used this sketch from Paper Take Weekly:

And a close up
