Tractor


I'm off to the hairdresser this morning and I will be so gad to get my fringe cut. It's really beginning to annoy me now. Hubby asked me to make him a get well card for a friend who is recovering from a major operation. Any idea what you would like on the card I asked. He would love a picture of a tractor he said as he has 4 vintage tractors he takes to shows. I knew I had a digi somewhere and just had to find out where. I file my digis under the maker's names and knew I had chosen one as a prize so I could use it for my friend Lynsey's hubby one year as he works on a farm. Anyway I found the digi from Sunshine Stamps. Next conversation was what colour shall I do it? The colour of his favourite tractor please. Yes I know, well each to their own hobby. So here it is and he was delighted with it, so that's what matters. 

I coloured it with Promarkers and added glossy accents to the glasses and light. I kept the design simple using Prima Craftsman papers, Core'dinations and MB cloud die.
