Less is More challenge...Things that Move...

Our challenge this week over at LIM is things that move....gosh what a choice of images to use for this challenge.
Searching through my transport stamps I came this bike image, dont know where it came from as I have had it for a few years!
Firstly I used my Hero Arts 'Screened Solids' stamp and inked it up using fluid chalks, then stamp the bike onto.  It looked a bit lost on the white card so just added some black behind the image to make it stand out.  Sentiment computer generated.
Have two  of our grandchildren with us tomorrow so we might possibly go down to Lyme Regis for a stroll, hence two posts today!

The background on this card really makes the bike pop....... strangely enough I've got some of these solid stamps tucked away somewhere and don't think I've ever used them!!!! lol
