Down in the Pits?

When I was doing my research for colouring the Superbird from Sunshine Stamps, I came across some racing quotes. One that really caught my attention was:


"The winner ain't the one with the fastest car,
it's the one who refuses to lose."
Dale Earnhardt.
So true...and that quote was the basis of my card (and it is also printed on the inside.) And, since Sunshine Stamps are digital, I opened up a word document and cut and pasted my little Superbird image a bunch of times to make a really cool background paper...see it...it's little Superbirds! I love it! The card was loosely based on Sketch #30 from 2 Sketches 4 You.

I used an image of The King from Disney's Cars to colour my image and then I cut it out and set it on pop-dots so it looks like it is popping of the card (hard to see online). Kind of fun that all I needed to make this neat card was one digital image, my copic markers and some black and white paper! I hope you like it.

Stamps: Sunshine Stamps Superbird
Paper: Misc. Black and White scraps
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: None! LOL!
