Born to Ride

Happy Sunday...and happy July! It has been a busy couple of days around here with Canada Day festivities. I am SO thankful to be finished school for the year and to have some time to unwind from the crazy pace of life.
Today marks a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps and it is a fun one! Check it out:



Here is my decidedly masculine take on it.

I have been dying to ink up the new One Wild Ride stamp set since it came with my first new catalogue order. When I saw this week's sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The Basic Gray tag is stamped with the motorcycle image in Basic Black ink. I then added some smudges and spatters of silver metallic ink (reired). To create the tag itself I used the Angled Tag Topper punch (also retired!). The tag in the background is cut from silver foil sheets and it embossed using the Houndstooth TIEF (this one's retired too!).

The Smoky Slate background panel is stamped with the tire tread image from the One Wild Ride set as well as a couple of texture images from the Gorgeous Grunge set. I added more silver smudges (that image is actually part of the One Wild Ride set...awesome, eh?) before running the panel through the Big Shot with the Brick Wall TIEF. I layered the embossed panel on a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock and then adhered that to a Basic Gray card base. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black on Tangerine Tango card stock and then die cut using the new Bunch of Banners Framelits. The only embellishments are some black metallic thread, a few silver enamel starts and the little Route 66 sign, which I stamped and fussy cut out.

On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped another tread mark in Basic Black and some more silver metallic smudges. The sentiment is again stamped on Tangerine Tango card stock using Basic Black ink and punched using the ned Best Badge punch.

This is a fabulously versatile sketch...be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects and you'll see what I mean. Give it a go and share your creation with us over at Sunday Stamps...we'd love to see your work!
