Born to be Wild

Nothing is more "manly" than a motorcycle.
This third card isn't exactly Wild Hogs"...but it is a cycle all the same. I found this great advertisement image posted by angelandspot on Flickr. The ad was suppose to be for bicycles, but with the wonderful font and frame it is impressive enough for a motorbike. I inked up the image with Versa Color "Split Pea"...
I was in a "green mood" while designing these cards.
My motorcycle image is from a old family photo. Two of my great uncles, one holding my aunt as a child. Okay...so it's not a "chopper", but it is still a motorbike...even if it has a sidecar. I had bought the green felt trim originally for this card, and liked it so well I used it on the "Cowboy" card too.
So bring on the "manly" celebrations...I'm ready !
Thank you Angel and Spot!
