Day 3 of the Clearly Besotted countdown teasers is upon us, and today I am featuring an almost one layer card using the very cute On Your Bike stamp set which will be released along with all the others on 1st August 8pm BST.
This is one of the larger sets in the release and features all sorts of cute images that you can combine to sit on the bike and put in the little trailer! And it could work for birthdays as well as just general friendship cards. I am low on birthday cards, so went with that option!
This card has lots of masking, stencilling and colouring. I began by stamping the bike and trailer onto some Copic friendly cardstock using Memento Tuexedo Black ink and then created the mask for this image. I placed the mask down onto the panel and stamped the little dog in the trailer and the dog on the bike. I then created a mask for both the dogs and stamped the balloons! Finally, I created a mask for the balloons.
Once all the image masks were fussy cut and laid down, I also added a strip of masking paper at the bottom of the wheels to create the ground. I took my Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink all the way up to the top of the card. The ground mask was then moved to enable me to add the grass area – Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
All the images were coloured with Copics (numbers listed below). Once I had finished this, I popped the panel into the MISTI to stamp my greeting – which is also from this set.
The finished panel was die cut using a rectangle die and mounted onto an A2 card base with foam sheet.
All I needed to do was add the finishing touches. I added some white gel accents to the trailer and balloons. Glossy Accents was added to the trailer and to parts of the bike. Some shimmer pen was added to the balloons.
That finishes today’s card and it was really fun to make! There are coordinating dies available for this set so you can make it without doing all the masking, but I do love the look of a one layer card and I enjoy pulling the masks away to reveal the image.
