You're a Classic

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another monochromatic card from the Cars shows, but this time I've used milk card instead of white.

For the background I popped the Tyre Tracks Mask on to some milk card at a jaunty angle and ran it through the Grand Calibur using the embossing sandwich. I inked all over with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I curled a couple of the corners using a cocktail stick. I wrapped some Black & White Baker's Twine around the bottom section of the background and tied a Creative Expressions Key Charm which I had coloured with a Black Promarker to it.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Classic Cars Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight and inked through the die with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using the Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Mega Curved Rectangles and inked through the die with Black Soot.

I assembled the card as shown adding dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Hi Julia
    This is a great manly card and really makes a statement. I sometimes struggle with male cards but these dies sort that problem out. It means all my male cards don't need to always be steampunk cards.

  14. Hi Julia, I am really enjoying these car cards and this mono one is fantastic. You have come up with some great designs for these stamps, keep up the good work! Christine H xx
