Growing Up is Optional

I created this card for Here Come the Boys Challenge #2 Sketch. I love the idea of having a challenge blog dedicated to the men and boys in our lives. I have always loved this image from Mo's Digital Pencil and finally decided to purchase it.

I colored it with Copics and sponged the edges of the picture with ColorBox Pigment Ink.  I tried to make railroad tracks down the side of the card.  They didn't quite come out as I envisioned them, but they'll do.

Copics:  B12, B14, B16, C1, C3, C5, E00, E02, E11, E25, E34, E35, E37,
              G14, G24, R14, R27, R37, Y13, YR18

What a fab card! You've used an image by one of my favourite digital artists too! Like you I spent lots last week on Mo's Digis but I'm not sure I bought this one, may need to pay a visit and take some inspiration from your cool twist on my Sketch! Thank you for sharing with HCTB's Woo x

I love the card. The tracks are genius. You have really come a long way since the first of the year. Your cards have always been lovely, but you are posting so much, that I can hardly keep up.
