Challenge #16 - Cards for Men - "Heavy Metal"

Good Morning Crafters, oh my Ive just had one busy week, two of my grandsons came to stay and of course Ive not been able to get into my craft room to play so Im now chomping at the bit to make a start, but of course firstly there is all the clearing up to do before I can even think of starting. Anyway I hope you will play with us over on Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot as this fortnights Challenge is "Heavy Metal" so we want to see a card with something metal on it and of course it must be right for a man or boy.
And this time we are very fortunate to be sponsored by Kenny K 

And they are offering 4 digi images for your prize

And here is what they say about themselves:-

I'm sure you're all familiar with the wonderful work of Kenny K's Shop but what about the man (and woman) behind those wonderful creations. Take a look here to see their journey, http://www.kennykdownloads.com/about-kenny-and-elena.php

We were so lucky to be given several images to play with and I chose this one for my card.


Hes called "Chico's Chopper" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used my rotatrim to cut him out and a piece of red card for the mount. The Sentiment is one that I googled and then printed it from my computer and then placed this also onto a piece of red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, the papers I have used are from Dovecrafts "Chronology" Paper Set and I have used three papers for my card. The mounted image was then placed towards the top on the left with the sentiment below on the right. To finish of I have used two motorbike charms and they were placed in the two opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Heavy Metal" Challenge.
