The theme for this week's Sunday Stamper is 'Silver'. At the moment it takes forever for me to do anything - 3 weeks to make 5 cards - so I thought I would use this week's theme to create a birthday card for a friend.
I have been loving the 'block' theme that Hels has been showing lately, so I thought I would give it a go.
Firstly, I embossed some metal using 2 Tim Holtz folders. I then dragged a black dabber across the metal and wiped over with a paper towel.
After this I cut the 2 metal sheets and a sheet of Destinations paper into random rectangles and squares.
I glued these randomly onto my card stock then edged it with walnut stain distress (my fave).
I die cut the Tim Holtz ticket strip and coloured it using weathered wood stain and edged with walnut stain ink.
The images are a fab set that I ordered from the States last year - my DH is a car fanatic and I had been looking out for 'reaistic' car stamps - I have used these so many times since and never bore of them. They were coloured using grey Promarkers. The sentiment was stamped in Archival from a stamp in my stash.
The tyre tracks were stamped in archival and then punched using a lace border punch.
I finished the card using Ideology from my stash.
I am really pleased with the finished result. You can buy everything that I used from The Stamp Attic.
Pop over to Hels' gaff to see her fabulous creation.
Thanks for looking.
