Biker Bo visits Basic Grey

This week at Basic Grey we would like to see some stitching on your cards - real or faux it doesn't matter .

Teddy Bo is off on his holidays and taking Bea with him. He's leaving Bo Towers and travelling south from Scotland, he's in his black leather biker gear and on his green Yamaha.


I can't tell you how much fun this card was to create!!! I've used Basic Grey Lili Kate papers as my dp  and rather than create a hand drawn background I decided to use a map and a photograph to give it more perspective. The map is scanned and the photograph downloaded.
The image is coloured in Copics  and I've added a couple of Lili of the Valley tags, stamped with Personal Impressions stamps and attached a Tim Holtz Ideology tag to a chain.


I used glossy accents on Bo's visor which you can just about pick up on this enlarged photograph and all my edges are machine stitched.


As always, the wonderful Heidi at  Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!

I hope you all have a brilliant fun packed weekend and thanks for calling

I can sense the fun you had with this & I love that you used a Scottish highland map. Oh I chuckled at the vision of those bears peeking out at me from behind a car. Love the tag & the whole design is just great fun.
