Out For A Spin


I got this Our Craft Lounge stamp set from i {heart} papers several weeks ago and MADE myself not even look at it until I had finished all my Christmas cards and the Sock Monkeys! Since I finally finished the cards and monkeys I couldn't wait to try this out. I love this stamp set and you will be seeing alot more cards with it soon. The little bicycle has all kinds of accessories with it - like a horn, kick stand, basket of hearts, etc.....just so many possibilities here.

I used several things to color this with - SU markers, Bic markers, and Prisma Pencils. I placed a silver brad in the center of the front wheel and a flower and brad on the handle bars. The little basket of flowers has several different colored rhinestones in it. The image and the sentiment were both popped up on dimensionals and I sponged around the main image. The patterned paper was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder in my Cuddlebug. I attmpted to put either grass or dirt or something under the wheels to make it appear it was "moving", but just could NOT get the look I wanted - so I left it off. The bow was made with - you guessed it - the Bow Easy (also from i {heart} papers).

I'm going to try to post a couple of times this week and then will be gone for a week due to a house full of company coming the day after Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by..............
