A Mans Card


It's a Mans World this week on Everybody Art Challenge and whether you hate or love them you still have to make a Mans card eventually.
So I had this London Bus coloured up and waiting for a perfect challenge but my problem came when I popped it over the map, its a big image so I went for the Clean and Simple way and just made a Birthday banner. The sentiment is also Penny Black its on a sentiment clear set.
The bus has been made the same way as the telephone box I did a while back. There's a base layer then I cut out and layered the critters. The top layer I cut out the windows and replaced them with acetate but I used sticky fixers rather than the silicone glue I usually use. The bonnet and the mirrors are an extra layer for dimension.
Do check out the team and we would love for you to join us.
Edited  a few comments about whether it is an actual map out of book that I've used, the answer is Yes unfortunately I didn't have any London pages left so if you look its Leeds Yorkshire, the puddy cat probably used a Sat Nav and is now lost!
