But ... I was asked as a Guest Designer from the Ladies from the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog! How cool is that! So for the month July I will participate and make examples for their Challenge Blog. Love it!
And this is my first card for their Blog.
The theme this week is: Use a Stamp (not a digi!).
So for this card I digged through my old stamps. I still have a lot but hardly use them any more.
And I thought, oke, use this old one. I still find it very beautiful and it is great for male cards.
And with my brother in the back of head I got of colouring. He has an garage and is restoring old Classic American cars, especially Cadillac. He owns himself also 4 Classic Cadillacs and one of them is a big black one with those big red tail lights and lots of chrome.
This stamp is from Stamps Happen and is called "Classic". Lol!
I coloured it up with my Copics. I do had a hard time to give the chrome a little bit a real chrome look. For that I used a ton of Copics. But I think the outcome is acceptable.
The sentiment on the front of the card is from Lili of the Valley. The inside sentiment stamp is from a set from ScrapBerry's, "Auto Vintage". Also that little gear stamp used on the front is part of this set.
The papers coming from a paper pad from Kaisercraft, "Black and White Timeless", and how great! One of the papers has a hint of red on it. I inked all the papers up with Distress Ink, "Pumice Stone".
The big gear edge is made with a die from Noor! Design, 6002/0288.
The small gears are from Sizzixs. After cutting them out, I inked them up with Embossing Ink and covered them with "Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel" from Stampendous and heated it with my heat gun.
On the red tail light I put some Glossy Accents so it makes it really shiny! It does not show so good on the pictures but in real it looks great.
The twine and split pins are from my stash.
The inside I decorated also. For that I used a cut out rectangle made with a die from CreaLies. And I fussy cut some of the play cards from the paper out of the paper pad and put that behind the rectangle.
So, that was it for today. I do hope you like my example card. I would say, run over to the blog of the 4 Crafty Chicks and check out the other great examples the DT Ladies made for this great Challenge.
Wishing you a nice day and hope to see you back soon. And before I forget, as always, thanks for visiting my blog!
