Retro geek

Dr Digi are our sponsors this time, over at the
I got a fabulous set of sentiment images... Comic sentiments. 

The set has 6 uncoloured images as well as a bunch of coloured images! 
I chose to use 2 (uncoloured) images to make 2 cards.
For this first card, I chose to colour the image with my promarker alcohol markers
and I used a fab retro backing paper behind it. 
A small red border underneath the sentiment and some balloons fussy-cut
 from a piece of docrafts paper, finished this card.
Oh, I wanted a clean, crisp edge around each of the  parts of this card, 
so carefully edged each element with a dark brown promarker.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cute card challenge - masculine - 18 June
I love promarkers - atg / for a boy - 23 June
Digi choosday - atg - 19 June

For this card,
I fussy-cut around the sentiment, after colouring it with my alcohol markers
and mounted it onto a black / red / white strip combo. 
I found the retro backing in my stash - 
it is actually a sticky-backed sheet! 
I have no clue where I got this from, only that I've had it for a long time
and I thought it was retro enough to go with the coloured sentiment. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative knockouts - atg - 19 June
Crafty Gals - you're the man  -  10 July
Jans digi stamps - atg - 6 July
