Speed Machine

Good Morning to my Crafty Friends and Followers

Today I have another card I have made using another of my stamps which you can purchase from Kraftyhands.  I have enjoyed playing with these stamps and plan to make more in the future.


Recipe & Method

1. I have covered the base of the card with a map taken from an old road map.  I have scrunched and used Tim Holtz distress ink Tea Dye. 
2. I stamped the vintage motorbike onto circular green card using Dew Drops VersaMagic Sahara Sand.  I then used a stippling brush and stippled using Vintage Photo and Peeled paint Distress Ink.  I then to the edge of my scissors and scuffed around the circle and inked with Dew Drops Brilliance Copper.
3.  I stamped "Speed Machine" on the inside of the card using Dew Drops Spanish Olive.
4.  On the tag I have stamped the word Vintage using Sahara Sand and inked using Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I inked the cord and using scissors scored around the tag and edged with Brilliance Copper.
5.  To finish off I used ProMarker Metallic Gold and coloured the charm attached some raffia and placed on the card.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

Linda, I LOVE this card....it's so clever (might have to nick the idea, if you don't mind) And funnily enough, the map is from my part of the world when I was 'at home' xx
