I new challenge is starting at The Alphabet Challenge, Having reached the letter ‘T’, Veronika has chosen the theme of ‘TRAFFIC’. I struggled a little with this theme, but eventually came up with this card:
I knew I wanted a few cars, and I knew I wanted that sentiment, but it took me quite a while to figure out what I was doing. I didn’t have appropriate car stamps or dies, so I used some ingenuity……
I used the ‘Destination Christmas‘ stamp and die set from Newton’s Nook……….I put the images on my Misti, masked the top of the cars where there are Christmas Trees and presents, stamped, then drew in the lines with a fine liner…………I was quite pleased with how they turned out.
Once coloured with Copics, and die cut with the matching dies, I fussy-cut the top to get the cars the way I wanted them.
Now for the background scene – Mama Elephant cloud die from their ‘Slim Card Basics‘ die set, and the Lawn Fawn ‘Road Border‘ cut twice to get the tarmac and then the grass verge. I did think about cutting a proper grassy verge – but the rest of the card is quite ‘clean’, so I kept it as you see.
The blue background is a textured light blue, almost a leathery texture, which I felt quite fit having as a sky.
And this time I remembered to stamp the sentiment before putting the card together!
I hope you can come and join us with your ‘Traffic’ creations – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
