Hello friends!

Today's card was requested by a friend.  She needed a card for her son for his birthday.  He likes motorcycles.   She asked me if I had any motorcycle stamps.   I had precisely one.   I asked her if she minded if Snoopy was riding it!

There are two versions of this card.   I personally like the versions with the blue sky, but it was extremely difficult to sponge around all the details in the image.   I accidentally got a little blue sky on Snoopy and Woodstock in the process of sponging.  I tried to cover it up by adding some extra shadows.   I think I hid my mistake well.

 Copic used:

Red: R05, R08, R29
Yellow: Y13, Y15
Orange: YR02---used as bridge to blend colors.
Grey: W4, W6, W8
Tires: C2
Shadows on Snoopy: C1, C3

If you like you can sponge the sky blue... just take your time around the details.  I just used a cloud die cut to create the shapes.   I thought the bright white clouds were too soften I lightly sponged with the blue.

If you know how to add clouds with copics, you could also try this...but the green ink is not copic safe. It could also blend with the colors on the bike.   So I didn't want to take the chance of ruining the card.
