Hello again friend. Let me start out by wishing all the dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day. Hope you’re spending it with the people you love.
If your dad is a car enthusiast, the On Track stamp set is definitely for you. I absolutely love the cars in this set.
For this card I really wanted the car to be the focus so I did minimal coloring on the background. I started out by taping off a section of my card panel about 2 inches wide. I placed the panel in my Misti and stamped the car using Eclipse Black ink. I was going to need to make a mask, so before I removed and cleaned the stamp, I stamped the car again on a full sticky note sheet. There was just enough ink left on the stamp so I could see the image
I fussy cut the image out and placed it over the car. Using Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey Distress Ink, I lightly blended between the masked off area.
My favorite part of ink blending with a mask is the reveal. This color combo is awesome.
Next, I grabbed a handful of Copic Markers. I used the cool grays for the wheels and windshield and the toner grays for the grill and bumper. Personally, I love a red car even though I’ve never owned one. I used five different colors in the Red family to get a good blend with highlights.
The All Season Sentiments Version 2 printed paper pack has a ton of sentiments for every occasion and since it’s printed with toner ink, its perfect to use with Deco Foil. I chose the sentiment Dad You’re the Coolest and cut it out. Next I cut a small piece of Deco Foil and placed the foil over top of the sentiment. I ran it through my laminator a couple times to make sure to get a good bond. It came out perfect. I added dimension foam tap to the sentiment and placed it in the lower right corner of the card panel that I had cut down to 4 x 5¼ inches.
I’ve been trying to use up some of the pattern paper I’ve accumulated over the years. I had this black striped piece that was just the right size. I glued it to a an A2 Top Fold Card base then adhered the car panel on top of that.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Until next time – Jackie❤
