Born To Be Wild

Good morning blog friends!
Is it Thursday already?? It must be! Yay!!
Here I am with my Just Inklined card for this week!

The image I have used is Born To Be Wild
The sentiment is one of three that come a part of the set!
I've made a card with a man in mind but there's no reason why
 this image couldn't be used for a lady biker too!
I couldn't stop singing to myself as I made this one!

For my layout, I used the sketch

 from Creative Stamp Friends

I used my Promarkers & Flexmarkers to colour up the image..
I chose the papers first & matched the colors to them.
The Papers are from a Papermania Colossal Paper Pad
called For Him & have been in my stash for a very long time!

I die-cut the sentiment with a Spellinders Die, then inked with 
Old Paper Distress Ink, whilst still in the die. I threaded  a piece of
Kraft card through & secured with a brad at each end.

The sentiment is attached using Pinflair Glue for a bit of dimension 
as are the die-cut cogs. 
I cut another cog into four for my cornes!

Thanks so much for popping in, I hope you enjoyed your visit!
