Bicycle Built for Two

This is my first creation for Beccy's Place!  The new set we are creating with is BICYCLE SET.

It is Beccy's first co-ordinated digital image set, and consists of three images (in colour and black and white line) with matching sentiments. You can buy the images and sentiments individually, or as a set.

I chose to create with the tandem bicycle, and the matching sentiment... I initially had in mind a fun twist on a wedding card, but chose colours that were a little more casual, like picnic blankets!

I coloured the image with SU! markers, and used white Aqualip pen for the seats and handles to give a little dimension.  I added a little touch of silver metallic glitter pen to the pedals and cogs.
After choosing the backing pattern, I then picked a more condensed darker pattern to matt the image.  I then stitched a border on the image layer, in DMC floss in varigated blue/green thread, which seemed to match the pattern papers. The matted image has been mounted using foam tape for dimension.

I am also sharing this card in these challenges:
Chocolate Coffee and Cards #35 Spring (4/4)
Daring Cardmakers "Springing Into Spring" (5/4)

Lovely card Pauline! Hmmm... I love the idea as using this image for a wedding card. My daughter Ashley's wedding is to be done in a picnic/market days theme... My brain is now spinning with ideas.
