On Yer Bike!

Hello and thank you for your visit today.

I stamped my bike (a magazine freebie) onto a piece of white card and a piece of kraft.

Next I tore the centre out of the white card and stuck the two sides to the kraft card, matching up the design.  For the flowers in the basket I stuck on small bits of flower soft.

The sentiment is an old wooden stamp and heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  I used snippets from my box t for decoration and mounting.



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I really like the look of the stamped bike against the craft card and I like the combination of colours as the black and red look quite striking. I love the sentiment and the way that it glimmers with the heat embossing too. Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

I'm a bit late arriving Barb but had to come and say how much I like your card, it's a nice clean design and the sentiment is perfect to bring memories of cycle rides through the Countryside (not recently I might add).

Many thanks for joining us at Fasionable Stamping Challenges.

Another clever design Barb with that wonderful freebie bike image and I love the tearing of the top layer to reveal the kraft beneath. The red is a great pop of colour and it shows up beautifully against the black too. x
