I'm the Mother of a Teenager!!

I don't know how that happened!! But, overnight, I've gone from mother of four.... to mother of 3 plus a teenage boy!! hahaha So I asked Daniel what he wanted on his birthday card and he said 'a red robot'!

Found this fabulous Dilly Beans robot image in my files and some black and white manly papers in my stash. I coloured the image with Promarkers and went over the top with Fired Brick Distress Ink on a blending tool to dirty up the image a bit. I added some Fired Brick Distress Ink to one of the papers and cut a Tim Holtz Weathered Clock from red card - this was distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink too.
I added some White highlights with my Uniball Signo pen, the time is set to 1pm which is 1300 hours in 24 hour clock!! Subtle! haha And added some '13's on the diamond papers. The sentiment is Craftwork Cards.
I shall enter this at the following challenges -
