.... Good afternoon! We've had the most glorious weather for the past couple of days, but today it's a bit dull and grey, so I've been working in my craft room. I normally tend towards the clean and simple style, but today I've a card that is more!!
Stamps: Gina K - Petite Patisserie; Stampin' Up! - Bike Ride
Inks: Gina K - Dusty Rose, Kraft, Sandy Beach, Soft Stone, Jelly Bean Green, Black Amalgam; Distress Oxide - Tumbled Glass
Dies: SU - Build a Bike; Die-namics - Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX #1
Accessories: White Card; SU Card - Strawberry Slush; Copic Markers; Nuvo - Clear Aqua Shimmer Brush; Gems
I'm submitting this card to Inkspirational - INK#212 where it's a photo inspiration challenge, Your Next Stamp - YNS#138 where they want to see layers, and Fusion - FUSION#0920. I've taken the Thank you theme from the Fusion photo for my card.
I've had this card in mind ever since I saw the photo at Inkspirational. I had a great time building this scene. I stamped the bike on white card, die cut with the matching dies, assembled it and added some gems to the wheel nuts. I stamped the cake shop directly on the card, added the cake stands and coloured it with Copic markers. I drew in a cobbled road with Copic markers and created the sky by tearing a shape into paper and used distress oxide lightly blended over the top. I adhered the bike to the card front, using dimensional pads. I finished by adding the sentiment strip and patisserie shop sign with dimensional pads. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of dark pink card and on the white panel I stamped a larger display of cakes and a sentiment.
I also took a couple of close-up shots to show the dimension on the bike and shop sign:
That's all from me today - I've got another online class with Dyan Reaveley tonight - should be lots of fun and I'll share the pages soon. Bye for now.
