When my oldest son was a youngster, he got the nickname "Champ," mostly because of his absolute determination to conquer all odds. :-D When I saw this fabulous image from the progressive challenge at LeAnn's World this month, those memories came flooding back and I made this card.
I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it and the two rectangles of dp with a pinpoint die from Memory Box. The sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die. I added tiny, shiny gold, gears and layered everything onto a Navy Blue card base.
By the way, those tiny gears were actually taken from an old watch which was inadvertently 'drowned' and couldn't be revived. I always say, "Waste not, want not!" I have a little plastic bag with other bits from that same watch and I know they are going to come in handy on other masculine cards which need a touch of bling or sparkle without becoming 'feminine.'
