Card Patterns #141 & PDCC107
Just popping in with a card inspired by sketch #141 over at Card Patterns and the Play Date Cafe Challenge (use the colours Black and White, with a splash of Orange!!) Eeek!! Way out of my comfort zone, but exciting too!
I stamped and paper pieced a VW Camper Van with orange cardstock and paper from making memories 'Just Chillin' collection. I added some Glossy Accents to the windows and the lights for dimension - love that shiny, glassy effect!! The spare tyre on the front of the card is a white PTI button which I've had in my stash for what seems like forever and reminds me of white-wall tyres. I simply added a black adhesive pearl to the centre to finish it off.
The banner was created by stamping a pennant from Waltzingmouse Bitty Banners onto paper from Basic Greys 'Out of Print' Collection and then cutting out and mounting onto foam dimensionals. It may be hard to see from the photo, but the paper I've used along the bottom has a whitewashed effect to it which reminded me of the chalky cliffs and soil we have along the beaches on our South Coast here in the U.K. So I guess that fits with the images I've used on my card.
And you can't think of VW camper vans and the beach without Surfboards - these cute images are from a set called Free Spirit Boy by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
I do hope you like what you've seen here today - thank you so much for visiting. Have a wonderfully creative rest of the week everyone!!
