On Your Bike

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is an awesome digi pack containing several images and a paper pack too - how cool is that.

Challenge #240

Theme 'Red, White and Blue' 

A very simple card with lots of layers.  I started by colouring the image BSA Bike by Sentimental Susan available from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.  The image was printed using the no lines technique with about 50% opacity.  Faber Castell Polychromos  and a silver pen were used for the image.  I embossed the white mat and the top three mats were all mounted with foam tape between them.
For the inside I used a chipboard die cut of a motorbike and used it as a stencil so I could airbrush over it - that really was fun :) :) :)

  10. Lovely Card Mimi but i'm afraid i'll have to delete it from our challenge at De-stempelwinkel as it doesn't contain a stamp stocked by us. The rules are stated in the challenge post and on the sidebar. BDx

  11. Wow this is totally cool! I love the design on the outside, the double mat is awesome but that design on the inside is the coolest thing ever!!
