Monochromatic Wanna Be......Father's Day Card

I've been trying to encourage the kids to make their Dad a Birthday Card and a Father's Day Card, but neither of them are showing any interest, so I figured I'd better get cracking, otherwise the poor bloke will have nothing!

I have a photograph of my DS when he was about 2 1/2 dressed up in his Dad's clothes and when I stumbled across this image it bought back so many memories that I just knew that I had to do something with it.

I've used Promarkers to colour the image. I found this one quite tricky to colour and managed to mess up the tie! So, I've had to cheat it good by cutting out another tie and colouring in and then decoupaging it onto the main image. Hopefully, no-one else, other than you guys will know what has happened!!
