The best thing about our wonderful craft of stamping is meeting & making friends with lots of lovely people. One of these friends, Susan, very kindly lent me her motorcycle stamp recently, so I could make a card for a bit of a bike enthusiast. Thank you Susan. *Waving :)*
Here's how it turned out:-
The bike was stamped in Versamark & then embossed with black embossing powder. It has been coloured with markers & silver metallic gel pen & then been clear embossed over the duco. I wanted a soft background, so used chalks for the grass & sky.
The black stripes have been given a "knobbly tyre" feel, by rolling the strips through a crimper, then putting them back through the crimper again a second & third time at a 45 degree angle.
