Hi, my card today uses the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - designed by our own talented Cecile Ribon.
I'm not as good at putting unrelated elements together in a pleasing pattern, like Cecile, so I went another route with the sketch and came up with a little scene.
I've created another video and do you know what the hardest part is? Trying to keep it down to a reasonable time! I don't want them to run on and on so try and keep them to the 5-7 minute mark. That means editing a 40 minute video down to about 7 minutes, which results in either everything sped up to warp speed or stuff edited out. At the moment I'm leaving in the coloring, but speeding it up a bit and cutting out a lot of the other aspects. I'd love to know which you'd prefer to see, or if you'd like me to mix it up from video to video. As an aside, editing the videos shows me exactly how long I sit there not doing anything, trying to make a decision on how to proceed 😀
This is more NBUS and uses Happy Trails by Lawn Fawn, which has been in my NBUS box for months. It was good to finally use it! I stamped and colored the images before cutting them out with the matching dies. I then wanted to make a "road" for the vehicles to sit on so had a quick hunt through my stamps to come up with something resembling a road. I found this double line stamp from SugarPea Designs and went with it. In hindsight, it probably would have looked better stamped in white, but so be it.
I die-cut a circle from some watercolor patterned paper and adhered that to the white card base. From there I arranged the trees and road and then popped up the vehicles with some foam tape. The stamped sentiment finished off the card.
Thanks for visiting! The rest of the design team have some fabulous cards to inspire you so please check them out.

As the stamp set was NBUS, I'm also linking this to Darnell's challenge. I'm hoping to do some camouflaged die-cutting before the challenge ends, but in the interim, here's a card that just features NBUS.
