I'm making the most of our fantastic new masculine images for my card today. If you're like me then masculine cards can be a bit of a challenge but I just love the new stamps we've got in the Mini Catalogue - they make it so easy.
The motorcycle works pretty well on it's own but I figured on another use for the border stamp in another great masculine set, the Plane and Simple:
Can you spot it at the bottom of my card? Details below:
Stamp sets: Motorcycle, Plane and Simple
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Basic Black, Real Red
Punches: 1-1/4" Square, 1-3/8" Square
Other: Crystal Effects
The card blank is an A6 landscape of Real Red. Selectively inking the square dots border from the Plane and Simple set with Basic Black ink the image was repeat stamped across the lower portion of the card. Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get it just right I then turned the stamp the other way up and repeat stamped again to create the "tyre tread". The main image was stamped using Black Stazon onto Whisper White card. A Real Red marker was used to colour the paintwork and then Crystal Effects applied over the top to give the glossy effect (easier to see in the top photo). This was matted onto Basic Black card and popped up on dimensionals on the card front, overlapping the tyre tread. The sentiment from the Plane and Simple set was selectively inked with Basic Black and stamped onto Whisper White card, spreading it across two lines instead of a single one. This was then punched out with the 1-1/4" Square and matted onto a 1-3/8" Square of Basic Black before popping up on dimensionals overlapping the main image as shown.
Thanks for stopping by.
