WEDNESDAY AGAIN...

..and this weeks Challenge #31 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS has the theme of transport. Lots of interpretations possible for this one, so let's see how you all get around, lol. We are sponsored this week by LETRASET and the winner will receive a pack of 5 Promarkers.

I wanted to do something with a vintage type look to it so I chose my paper (just the one) from the V & A collection. My image is 'Tricycle Trip' from CHARMED CARDS & CRAFTS. It was coloured with Promarkers, of course, and I also put a layer of Glossy Accents over the red bike frame.



I'm entering it into the following challenges too:
CHARISMA CARDZ - Inspired by a song. My song is Main Road (lots of lines about a lucky little girl on a little red bike).
BEE CRAFTY - Anything goes.
COWGIRLS SUNDAY - Anything goes.
CRAFTY CREATIONS - Transportation.
BUNNY ZOE'S CRAFTS - Vintage.
PENNY'S CHALLENGE - Happy Birthday.

The lovely lyrics of MAIN ROAD BY LUCINDA WILLIAMS (and others).

On The Red River, on Bayou Pierre
Rosalee worked in White's Grocery
I'd get in trouble for goin' down there
She'd give me corn pops for free

Little red bike out on the main road
Lucky little girl
Little red bike out on the main road
Lucky little girl

Early in the mornin' brother and sister off at school
Mama sent me for wild flowers
Buttercups in the mornin' dew
A little red bike out on the main road too

Ghost tracks, water towers, picnics in a haunted roost
Horses waiting to be groomed need a little sugar too
Train game, moss monster, playin' down in the woods of bamboo
Mr. Black Snake ate all the bad snakes, Mr. Black Snake'll eat you too

Games turn into life
Once a tomboy now a tomwife

Little red bike out on the main road
Lucky little girl
Little red bike out on the main road
Lucky little girl
Lucky little girl
