Many of the PTI Forum members have been playing along with The Shabby Tea Room challenges. So I thought I'd give it a try. I wanted another Father's Day card, so here's my entree for Week #13.
I had some nice feedback on the last card I posted using my mini road map. I wanted to try it again with some different elements.
All supplies are PTI unless otherwise stated.
I started with a card base of Soft Stone. I'm loving this CS and using it a lot lately. I love how it takes on the hue of the darker color you are using. Here I paired it with Ocean Tides.
Next is a panel of Kraft. I stamped a strip of SS with A Little Argyle in Smokey Shadow and Orange Zest, then added a rectangle of OT Bitty Box Basics. My map was found on the internet and printed on SS, scored and folded to imitate the real thing. The poster was also found when I did a Google search for free vintage bicycle image. I die cut SS with Mat Stack 2 and stamped the bike from Everyday Button Bits with True Black. I colored with Copics E08 and T1, 4, 6. The buttons are of an unknown manufacturer. Lots of distressed edges tipped with Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo. I tied it all up with Rustic Button Twine. The Sentiment was stamped on white Twill Tape, heat set, and then spritzed with diluted Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink. It's tucked under my favorite Bobbin Ribbon in Black & White. I also used lots of Glue Dots, Score Tape and Sticky Strips.
I really enjoyed this one. Hope you liked it.
Thanks for dropping by.
