I received a Clearly i Stamp newsletter. The newsletter included a sketch challenge, shown above. Generally I tend to avoid challenges because I can never copy what I see. However, I really liked the clean and simple look of this sketch so figured why not. Need to get cards made anyway, right?
I started with brown card and yellow card stock, both from Stampin Up. Don't know the colors exactly as they have long separated from original packaging. I pulled out a stamp set from The Angel Company (still miss them) called Cars; I need to practice creating masculine cards. Miscellaneous papers from Momenta and have a travel theme to them. Image stamped in VersaFine Black and a little Spica Atyou sparkle used on the chrome areas. Splurged and recently laid claim to my first Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad called "barn door" which is the red antiquing around the yellow card stock..
When I finished, I must admit to a very rare urge to fill in the open area at the top right. Unusual for me as I like an uncluttered landing spot for my eyes.
Here is the finished card.
I would like to enter this into the Clearly i Stamp Clearly Inspired Challenge #37 (CIC37).
