Happy Saturday! Motorcycle Mama Edna is pleased to introduce the latest challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, V IS FOR VROOM! We are looking for cards or other projects featuring motorized vehicles with wheels. I went with the trusty automobile for my card:

Lots of fun stuff went into this card. I started by ink-smooshing the background panel in greens and browns. I used aged gold embossing powder on the clocks stamp for that vintage-y look. The car panel is stamped and then layered with a couple of images from a Graphic 45 paper pad. (As soon as I get any Graphic 45 stuff out, I seem to fall through a strange portal where my cards become much more layered and grungy than is normal for me.) 
It's not a Father's Day card, but it is a guy card, so I'm linking up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge
My sisters have come up with all kinds of vehicular snark for your enjoyment, and so has our latest guest designer and current Queen of Snark, Jane! I hope you'll check out all their amazing work, and then hop on your motorized tricycle and join us! 

Supplies: Stampin' Up very vanilla & naturals ivory cardstock, Strathmore watercolour paper, Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman patterned paper, Unity Consider Yourself Vintage & Hero Arts Time to Stamp stamps, Versamark & Stampin' Up bravo burgundy inks, Wow clear matte & Stampendous aged gold frontage embossing powders, pop dot tape

Pin It Now!
