Cruisin' Down the Road

Meet today's card.
Just a fun one playing around with this Stretched Xs stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.
It reminded me of roads, so I went with that idea.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock and put it onto my stencil mat with the Stretched Xs stencil over that.
  • I simply inked it up with Distress Oxide inks that I thought looked good together.  They were:  Prize Ribbon, Peacock Feather and some Wilted Violet.
  • I removed the stencil and let the ink dry.
  • I stamped the little retro car and fussy cut it out.  I did the same with the word bubble.
  • I glued the stenciled piece onto some purple cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.
  • I pop dotted the little car and the word bubble over the stenciling.

Here is the stencil I used:

I love the way you have used that stencilled background as a roadway for your card and love the blue and purple tones, and a great sentiment too Karen. x

Wonderful use of the stencil Karen, and a fun 'thinking of you' type card

I've driven a few roads that felt like this in my day, Karen! None were nearly as cute - nor was the car I drove! Love your spiffy two-door! So fun!

Your blog post brought back so many fond memories of road trips and the sheer joy of cruising down the open road. The way you captured the essence of freedom and adventure is truly inspiring. It's a great reminder of how these simple pleasures can bring so much happiness and create lasting memories. For those of us who love exploring but need to let go of an old vehicle, the idea of getting Cash for North Cars Brisbane before the next adventure is an appealing thought.
