The sketch challenge that this qualifies for is this photo for Card Patterns #46, details which can be found here. To make this, I stamped the truck on white with black craft ink, sprinkled black embossing powder and heated with the heat gun. I coloured with my Copic markers. I then added glaze with a blue tint to the window and windshield and added a clear glaze to the black part of the truck for a very swanky enamel job! I cut out the truck after the "enamel" was dry (at least 30 minutes) and put on the "hubcaps". They are look like Star of Texas ones! (SU) I had also stamped out the little packages on white with Memento Tux. black ink and coloured these with Copics. For the front panels on the card I cut a Bazzil textured 6 X 6 sheet of this grayish blue and cut in half. I used different embossing folders on each half and adhered to a black panel. I then hand cut a tag in both black and the blue and stuck together.
I placed the truck on the tag and then stamped the birthday sentiment and placed it in a SU metal frame and used a punch for the blue shape and then cut out a black piece to layer underneath. The little black glass tiles are a nice embellishment to a masculine card.This second card is one that I tweaked today to use for the Verve release challenge to make a card using black/gray/turquoise. VSJAN10C (Verve team, I hope this qualifies as turquoise?) I really like how this one turned out and the button wheels are PaperTreyInk buttons.
A lot of fun and I have so many more challenges to try tomorrow...Verve has 5 going on to complete by this Friday. I hope I can complete them all :o) Thanks for taking a peek tonight,
