You're the Best


Today over at the Cardz4Guys challenge blog. We have a NEW challenge which is to use this sketch.

For this card, I had to make my own silver foil paper. I have a YouTube video to share with you on how I created this card. Specifically the silver foil paper and the embossing technique. 

I also cut out the sprocket which is on the bottom right of the image. This piece was die cut out of white cardstock. I then took the Pearlescent dark grey color and a paint brush to color this piece. For the motorcycle stamp that I used. It is a larger stamp than you see here. But I die cut it down to this size. I stamped the motorcycle with Distress Oxide. And then activated its properties with a water bottle. As for the sentiment I stamped that onto white cardstock and then cut it down to where it looks more like a label. 

Stamps: Stampendous Motorcycle Elements, CTMH Wordfetti
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Black, aluminum foil
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Black Soot, VersaMark Dazzle Frost, StazOn Jet Black
Accessories: Pearlescent Watercolor Set, Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets, A2 Matting Basics A, Sizzix Circles Dotted, Cuttlebug Diamond Plate, Ranger Embossing Powder Clear
