I was inspired by the inspiration photo (you can find it further below) over at Inspired by All the Little Things blog :), and by the DT cards of Keeway and Marcie with the gorgeous brush stroke backgrounds.
I applied a few drops of Sailboat blue and Pool on the felt of the applicator and swiped it on a glossy CS several times from right to left and vice versa. I then stamped the bicycle from Hero Arts using StazOn black and added a bit of yellow and red on the flowers with glaze pens to represent the colors of the bicycle on the photo. The fabulous die is from Essentials by Ellen. I cut it from the panel and 4 times from white CS to stack them up. I blended some Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean on the card base and on some scrap CS for the sentiment. I cut the front panel on the left side to seperate them for the blended card base to peeking out and glued them flat on the card base. I wanted the small banner with YOU ARE from Avery Elle to look like a street sign. So I added a silver metallic enamel dot on the banner.
I'm entering this card also into A Blog named Hero: Tone on Tone and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies.
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have a wonderful week!
