Boy on Bicycle

For this card I've used a LOTV stamp with a boy riding his bicycle. I know that sportsmen don't usually ride with their dog on the back of their bicycle, but I didn't have any other image fit for the sports theme... I started coloring the image using Promarkers in different shades of blue and grey, but I thought it needed just a little a splash of color, so I gave the boy red shoes. The image is mounted onto a panel of kraft, then onto a plain blue-grayish paper attached to the kraft card base . I wanted to keep the design clean, so the only embellishment is a die cut cloud, with a fine line of white gel pen around its edges.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Outlawz Sunday CAS - Sports Theme
2) Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet - Clean and Simple
3) My Time to Craft - #232 Sports
4) Dream Valley Challenges - #64 For a Child
5) A Little Bit Crafty - Clean & Simple
6) ABC Challenges - Coloring with Markers
7) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

This is so adorable...the burst of red for his shoes is perfect! I think it is sporty...I think he is in a boy plus dog race at a local community fun day!

Great boyish/sporty card Pi!
