TMR - Theme .....


... Hello again! I'm back (a little late because of my earlier post) with my card for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#85. We had some really fun non-card projects for our last challenge, and we thought we'd make it a bit easier for you this time. We have a theme - CARS - this should be a breeze for your masculine projects. I made a very simple card:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Half Pint Heroes; Stampin' Up! - Sheltering Tree, Butterfly Basics, Beautiful Ride
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Gina K - Moonlit Fog, Warm Cocoa, Dark Chocolate, Jelly Bean Green, Grass Green, Black Onyx
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gina K Card - Moonlit Fog; Copic Markers; Shimmer Spritz - Frost; Clear Embossing Powder


I had lots of fun creating the scene on this card. I mixed together stamps from several different companies (something that I really like to do). I stamped the car, using the mirror image technique from Jennifer McGuire, on to white card and coloured it with Copics. I then repeated the stamping with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear powder, and cut out the car. I stamped a dashed line to create the road, added a tree in the background, a puff of exhaust from the car, and a simple greeting. I finished the front by adding the car which I attached with dimensional pads. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of grey card and on the white panel added the dashed line and a greeting.

I'm submitting this card to Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#194 where they want to see Men's Hobbies. I think driving counts!!
