Let's Take A Spin!

I had some scrap room playtime this past weekend and got several DT projects done. To reward myself for working so hard, I played with some Bombshell Stamps and created this pink girlie Harley card strictly for play - to enter into some challenges! She's born to be wild... get your motor runnin'... :) Who says biker chicks can't be all girlie and feminine?!

I love sketches so I followed the Bombshell Stamps November sketch for this. And the intent was to go monochromatic - black and white - with just a splash of pink - which I think I pulled off fairly well! I'm diggin' it! ;)

The background is gorgeous white linen cardstock matted on pink and then on black, with contrasting strips of black/white Swiss dot paper matted on black. I colored the image, fussy cut it, gave it a pink paper-pieced paint job, then mounted it on some faux leather that I girlied up with a pink oval scalloped die cut. Embellishments consist simply of gemstones, flat-back pearls and a bow. ;)

For the inside, I stamped animal print in vibrant pink ink, die cut it and matted it on black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment, matted it on black cardstock and adhered it to the animal print.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury white cardstock; Marcos white linen cardstock; Paper and More black cardstock; DCWV textured hot pink cardstock
  • Black/white Swiss dot paper and bow from the Papermania Capsule collection
  • Bombshell Stamps Harley Bikes stamp set (bike and sentiment)
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Copics: C1/3/5, RV25
  • Comotion Almost Leather
  • Faux stitching drawn with DecoColor Liquid Silver opaque paint marker
  • Spellbinders Classic Ovals, Scalloped Ovals and Classic Squares dies
  • Bombshell Patterns stamp set (animal print inside)
  • VersaColor Opera Pink ink
  • Large black pearl flat-back pearls; tiny pink gemstones; small silver flat-back pearl

I hope you like my pink girlie Harley! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
