Vroom! Vroom! - Monday 7th July 2014

Hello Friends,

I hope you all had great weekends, especially my followers in the USA who have all been having a lovely 4th July Holiday weekend!

Just a quick post today, this is a guy card I made recently...

It's a 7x7 blank which I covered with red card. I cut a panel of white card and using a small polka dot mask inked through using Dried Marigold distress ink. I then used something that I got at Ally Pally this year and is quite fun to use with my Promarkers.  It's a little colour spritzer airbrush, which gives a similar effect as ink sprays. I sprayed once with the dried marigold and a second time with worn lipstick.

The arrows and 'Hooray' are also masks, but I can't remember if they were also an Ally Pally buy or I picked them up in the USA last year...good fun though! The Happy Birthday stamp was free with a magazine during Jubilee year when we are creating lots of patriotic crafts.

I matted and layered the centre panel on to black card and also cut black strips to finish off. The car stamp is definitely an Ally Pally buy, but from a few years ago. It doesn't have packaging but I'm pretty sure it was in the bargain box on Sue Wilson's stand (one of her Rubbernecker range). I coloured it with promarkers.

That's it for today, I will be back tomorrow with my Design Team post this week for Sam Poole..again it's not a card, but it is paper craft this week......:)

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Love and Hugs
