Here Come the Boys Challenge No 48

One of the DH's colleagues has a birthday coming up soon.  He is interested in aeroplanes as well as steam trains and after searching through my stash I chose this digi.      
I watercoloured the background and then, after the paper had dried, coloured the figures with watercolour pencils, using metallic pencils for the aeroplanes.  I used backing papers from Paper Wishes (one of the folders containing these was dated 2005 so I suppose I should say they are out of my stash!!!).  The banner came from a Kanban kit that was also purchased some time ago - not quite ancient but close!

I am entering this card into Here Come The Boys Challenge #48  who are using an inspirational  picture collage which inspired me to make this card and then I shall post the card to R for his birthday.


  1. Love how you've interpreted our inspiration picture at Here Come The Boys
    Thanks for joining in, good luck and hope to see you next time too, Donna ☺

  2. Hi, Christine - a WONDERFUL vintage card. Remember seeing the boys playing with things like that in the vacant fields - back in the day LOL Love your coloring, too! hugs de

  3. I think this is a great card for a guy and a fab creation for our Picture Challenge at Here Come The Boys! Good Luck with your entry! Woo x


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
