Old Truck and Gears

I love this old truck from Fred, She Said Designs, it is a great image for a Father's Day card or a birthday card for a guy. I made this card for an upcoming birthday of a friend. The colouring of the image and background were with Copic Markers and Distress Inks.  I used an embossing folder for the background that has gears on it and then added the punched gears to complete the card.  

Thank you for stopping by.
