One For The Boys at Stamping Sensations

I was lucky enough to have my card picked as the winner for the July challenge over on Stamping Sensations. So I have been asked to be the Guest on this months challenge which is One For The Boys. For my card I have used Stampin Up's One Wild Ride, it was made with my son in mind as he loves motorbikes and has owned 3-4 so far. I started by making the wood grain effect background (tutorial can be found here), then when it was dry I over stamped using some of the background stamps from the set. I over stamped the base card, again using the background stamps from the set then stamped the bike and the sentiment and embossed with black embossing powder. I cut out the image and the sentiment and lightly dusted with my ink dusters with a matching ink. The ladies on the DT have made some beautiful cards for your inspiration this month I do hope that you will pop over and take a look.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Many congratulations Sue on your Guest Designer role at Stamping Sensation. It's a challenge that I've always loved and the first one that I ever entered when I started blogging last year. I was lucky enough to be a winner on that occasion and that's something that I'm really proud of. This is a fabulous masculine card that you've created and the sentiment works so well with the main focal image. I love the colour tones that you've used and the tyre tracks look great too. Enjoy your Sunday. Sandra x
