Well, Stampin' Up! you couldn't get more blokier than this! Not excluding lady bikers of course, but no man would mind receiving a card like this!
A minimilist look, stamped in black Stazon ink on watercolour paper, coloured with Real Red, Basic Gray and outlined in Bashful Blue, then colour washed with an aqua painter and some "gravel" using the champagne glass glitter and Crystal Effects applied to red areas to make it pop. Given time, the glass glitter tarnishes and would be great for using on vintage scrapbook layouts. I was told it's all acid and lignin free so perfectly safe for scrapbooking with. I cased it from Regional Training.
For a finishing touch, I added a length of Real Red 1 1/4" striped grosgrain cut into a fish tail and the square rhinestone fire brads. Hope you likey!
