Road Trip

Today is a three card day and here I am back with a card for the Rabisco May Challenge. I usually participate in the mid-month DT line-up, but since I had recently won this Dr Digi stamp, the sponsor for May is Dr Digi Stamps and I was wanting to play here, I created the card for the first of the month lineup. The stamp is called Summer Holiday.

I printed the image out onto Daler-Rowney Drawing paper and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils. Once colored, I fussy cut it. I cut the printed ropes holding the cases onto the roof of the bus off as I wanted to replace them with the twine.

I created a background scene with piece of patterned paper from my stash. I don't know what paper pad it came from as I have had it a long time. I cut the sheet down so that the road was slightly off centered. I was creating a 5.5x5.5 card and so cut the scene at 5x5. I then glued the holiday-maker onto my card with his one wheel in the grass.

Using the deer from the Spellbinders November Small Die of the Month kit, I added the outline of the die cut to my scene. Using another win, I stamped the "bon voyage" sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink using a Kaisercraft stamp from the Just Landed set included in my prize.

I completed the scene by adding the twine from my stash and a dove silhouette using a die from the Spellbinders Dove Frame set. I then glued the scene to a black cardpanel which I then adhered to the cardbase. What a fun image this was to work with!
