I'm back today with news of our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Helen has chosen the theme of
'NO PRETTY PAPERS'
Now, normally I would be lost without my enormous stash of pretty papers, but I must admit I am beginning to enjoy making my own backgrounds and this challenge provides a great opportunity to play. So, here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...
This one is made with my brand new stamps from Creative Expressions. The background is stamped using the script stamp and Faded Denim distress ink (first and second generation to get the difference in shading). I then ran it through a script embossing folder for extra detail and texture.
The main focal stamp is one of the gorgeous old cars from the 'Vintage Cars' stamp set. I have coloured it with my Promarkers then added glossy accents to the blue paintwork to make it shiny. The sentiment is also from the same set.
Added embellishments include a piece of navy ribbon and a few card candi, coloured with my Promarkers to match the colour scheme.
I hope you will come and play with us this time.
Hugz, Jan xx
