We're in the middle of a summer storm here - thunder, lightning and hail - I love it! Of course, I only love it because I'm inside and listening to the rain/hail on the roof is something I find quite soothing. Anyway, onto today's card. This is a card using the colors at Color Throwdown and the sketch at Seize the Sketch. I love these masculine colors and the sketch is one I'm sure to use again.
The Night of Navy panels on this card were created using a Tim Holtz stencil and translucent embossing paste. I love the effect - it's like clear embossing but even more textured.
I used a new-to-me CTMH stamp set called Maximum Power and stamped the tyre track and sentiment onto a Soft Sky panel and one of the car images onto Very Vanilla before cutting it out.
This inside was kept simple with another tyre track and the other car from the set stamped in Soft Sky.
I might end up giving this card to my 16 year old son, Matthew, who today got his first car. It's certainly not a muscle car like this one, but he's so excited to have his own car to learn in. And so am I, because for the last 3 weeks he's been learning in my car - a 3.0l BMW - and I've learned he's got a heavy foot LOL.
Thanks for looking.
