A card for this week's Teapot Tuesday challenge to make cards featuring transportation suitable for children, as Linda (Hotwheels) will send these out to children who need cheering up. I stamped the cityscape image on white cs, and also on computer paper. I fussy cut the comuter paper and used it for a mask. Then I brayered the sky. I coloured the water with blue copics, but I mad the mistake of trying to add a sun reflection on the water and messed it up. Ah well, it is, what it is! The vehicles were coloured with Tombow markers, and fussy cut out. I drew the fence in by hand, in order to make a road. I hope this card will be suitable for a child.

Sooooo sweet this is. I fussy cut all the time as do not have a lot of dies or punches---you did great. Your images a adorable and the reflection of sun came out great as the water is moving and has waves so distorts it---no mistakes in stamping---great coloring.

More than suitable!! Your cityscape skyline is really great, and I love that busy road with all the trucks. It reminds of the Richard Scarry books my brother used to love so much, and which I've bought for his son from time to time. "Cars and Trucks and Things that Go" was his favourite, and your road definitely reminds me of that. The reflection of the sun looks pretty OK from here

Ina, this is wonderful for a child! What little guy would not delight with those cars and trucks! Love the fence you drew. I would have guessed that was a stamp. I too, love the sun reflection in the water!
