Woodware UK: Travel the Open Road

The Woodware UK team has been challenged this week to create in a "Travel" theme. I figure that not all people travel by plane, train, or boat. Living in the USA in California as I do, there are many who "Hit the Road" on their motorcycles, some as part of groups and clubs, and some just go solo. It's a great way to see the country, as long as you do it safely!

My card features the Stampendous Cling Motorcycle Elements done in monochromatic tones. The image was stamped in black dye ink. I smeared some Clearsnap Black Mixed Media ink on an acrylic block, and using a waterbrush, I picked up just the amount of ink for shading and detail that I wanted, leaving some areas white for highlights. When dry, I added a bit more water to the ink on my block, and using a sponge, I daubed this watery ink over my Dreamweaver Stencils Houndstooth background before stamping over the  top of my panel. The top was torn and adhered to the card. I used an eyelet setting tool set to insert two larger silver eyelets at the top before tying a black and white chevron ribbon through them both. The end result is very graphic and masculine. Of course, you could add pink and white ribbon for that "Motorcycle Mama" in your life! Safe travels!
