Hello Rockin' Friends!
Welcome to the third VC Rocks blog hop of the season! Our blog hops and make and takes have been a huge success this year... huge thanks to all the VC Rocks members who contribute their talent and inspiration!! If you have missed any of the wonderful stops on the hop... begin at the VC Rocks blog. If you arrived from Brenda Hugar's blog you've seen her awesome VC Hotel inspired project... isnt it too cute??
On to my share for today! I'm featuring the motorcycle stamp from the Summer mini (get this little guy while you can, it is so fun to play with) and the returning In Colors Tangerine Tango and Soft Suede. There is alot of shine on my card which you may not see in the photo.
My background is a modified version of Antiqued Glimmers from Technique Junkies Newsletter. First, I rubbed tangerine tango and soft suede ink onto a non-stick craft sheet. Next, I spritzed the ink with gold glow Smooch Spray and laid my white cardstock into the mixture. Repeat this process once and let dry. The dry background piece was embossed with a folder and the embossed areas highlighted by dragging a soft suede ink pad across the surface. Set this aside.
The main image was stamped with soft suede. I used a blender pen and tangerine tango ink to color in selected portions of the motorcycle. Tear around the image and sponge soft suede along the edges... repeat with greeting.
The hodgepodge hardware was distressed by using sandpaper made for metal. Sorry I dont know the brand because I snuck it out of my hubby's sandpaper stash. Swipe a little dark brown alcohol ink (Sharpie or Copic marker) and immediately wipe with a dry cloth to remove some of the ink. If you are angry or frustrated, hammer the edges a bit;)
Lastly, embellish with a bit of knotted crochet lace tied to the square hardware!
Next on the blog hop is my friend Patrice Herrara at My Little Patch of Dirt.
Have a rockin' day!
