Sketch & Travel

There's a new challenge blog called Friday Sketchers and has the title suggests it about sketches, its well know I can't resist so I used it for this card. The theme was inspired by the challenge on Arty Girlz which is for travel/places and I immediately thought of maps and this stamp I brought at the make it show earlier this year. I also used some BG papers and inked the map which was quite bright against the papers. Theres a bit of stamped acetate for the windscreen, the sentiment has been changed since I photo it. It now reads Happy Father's Day.

The latest trend seems to be machine sewing on cards, I blew the dust off Damon my sewing machine I'm sure I heard him laughing.
