Pride & Joy.

Tomorrow it's Darren's birthday. I made his card a while back for an ALLSORTS challenge using a fab Penny Black image "Fly Away" he loves old aeroplanes so it was perfect.
xXx
But over on LOTV there's a fab sketch by Dawny P and I just had to make his father's day card using this , oh so sweet, image.
Darren works for a John Deere depot so I just had to do it in their famous colours. Anyone who know's Darren will know that he's always washing his car, so thought this was a fun alternative.
xXx
The only thing is Darren's colour blind, when it comes to muted shades of  red, greens & browns they seem to merge & without thinking I used lots of muted greens & browns - hopefully it'll be ok & not just one big blur - lol!

I have used:
LOTV - Pride & Joy
Basic Grey - Origins
Hero Arts -It's your day
Water-coloured with versacubes.
