Road Less Traveled by Laura Fulcher

Laura Fulcher made a sweet card for our current "Are We There Yet " Challenge using Classic Truck (G1866) and Road Less Traveled (D3613).

Greetings everyone. Today the IO challenge is all about travel cards. I instantly knew that I wanted to use the Classic Truck image (G1866) with some of my new watercolors.  It really is a fun image to color.  I made a card out of heavy watercolor paper, stamped the image with black India ink, then colored the image with some Peerless watercolors.  To finish the card, I added  the Road Less Traveled saying (D3613).

Don't Look Back by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp shares a fun guy card for our current challenge "Masculine Cards" using Rodeo Silhouette 2 #D13166, Ride Hard #C13164 and  Border Duo One Die Set #DIE017-V

 

 

I went cowboy for this masculine challenge. I stamped the Rodeo Silhouette 2 image and the Ride Hard sentiment using Versafine Onxy Black. After Stamping I cut it out with a rectangle die and added my piercing around the edge. I left it in the die and added a few layers of Copic Airbrushing using E07, E44 and E47. After airbrushing I used the Copic Fur Technique to add a little texture to the colored background. I also added a few dabs of smudged black ink.
 

 

 Simple layers on the inside.

 

I used my Perfect Layer Rulers to add lots of straight line layers. The main panel has some black jute string wrapped around it with the hardware brads for a little more of a manly touch. I refrained from adding a bow - it was difficult. I popped the main image panel up with foam tape for simension. The finished card is an A2 and opens tent style at the bottom. 

 

Have a great day!
