Hot Rod

The Cards for Card Design Class are always fun to create, I always try to create one card with technique and layers, a little more complex but fun...

and this is the one we created for last week's class, using the fabulous image from the Penny Black®, Inc. Hot Rod stamp set. How cool is this car - as soon as I saw this set I knew I had to have it and was thrilled to see it arrive - love Happy Mail!

The background paper is retired Stampin' Up! paper and my favourite - worked perfectly with the Spellbinders Paisley  M-Bossabilities™ folder, a little bit of sanding gives it an aged look.  The digi Steam punk frame has been cut and embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine
and the Labels Twenty-Nine  Nestabilities®

I have also used IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black,
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink Dew Drop in Dessert Sand and Peanut Brittle.
