Road Construction

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends,sponsored by Melonheadz and I chose "Road Construction" as my little grandson is obsessed with diggers and any kind of construction vehicles he had loads.The images are all precoloured and there are loads more images than I used,I startd with the idea of making a card then decided to make him a hanging for his bedroom,I used an MDF shape from Joanna Sheen,and painted it in a couple of Aztec paints,distressed some pieces of recycled corrugated packaging and put the images on 3-D foam,cloud die from Your Next Stamp and I will put his name on before I give it to him.
