King of the Road

** 10/9/13 Winner at Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog! **
** 10/6/13 Winner at Bombshell Stamps Blog! **

I've been in the scrap room playing with my new Bombshell stamp sets! Woo-hoo! I can honestly say I've had some inky fingers and that's definitely not a bad thing! ;) This card is one I created specifically to enter into a few challenges! I love me some sketch challenges and just don't seem to play with them often enough. C'mon, what are you waiting for?! There are still a couple more days, so come play!

Here's the Bombshell Stamps September sketch....

And here's my version...

I modified the sketch a bit, as I definitely felt like this street rod needed some square corners!

I used a piece of bright yellow cardstock that's been kicking around in the scrap bin for a couple years now, so I felt pretty good about that. The vintage dark gray and yellow gingham papers are from fairly new 6x6 paper packs.

And here's a peek at the inside. Love that V8 symbol! ;)

I'd love to enter a few challenges with this girl:

  • GKD Pure Luxury ivory and dark gray cardstock; yellow cardstock from stash
  • Vintage dark gray paper from My Mind's Eye Nostalgia 6x6 designer paper pad; vintage yellow gingham paper from Crate Paper Pretty Party  6x6 pad
  • Bombshell Stamps King of the Road Stamp set
  • StazOn Jet Black ink
  • Copics: Y06/17, C1/3/5
  • Queen & Co. Rox Marble Magic gemstones

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
