Anywho, I told you I was working on my Splitcoast challenges, and I got 2 done tonight! The one I'm showing you now is the Sketch Challenge 163, which is a layout I love. I knew I wanted to use it with this Old Skool Kit from Unity Stamp Company...man was this fun to play with!!
The main image is a super detailed motorcycle image, and it stamps fabulously! I stamped it in Cocoa ink, then used my Stampamajig to overstamp the same image in Versafine Black to create a drop shadow. The brown-ish panel was rubbed with my Distress Tea Stain inkpad, then stamped randomly in Walnut Stain with the "HAWG" stamp and the rose, both from this set. I then sprayed my Silver Memories Mist (a goodie from CHA!) over the top for some bling. Then to create the pumpkin panel, I inked up the flame stamp in pumpkin, then sponged chocolate ink on the "tails" and randomly stamped to create my own patterned paper. All the edges are sponged, and I distressed the pumpkin panel with my Tonic Distressor tool.
The chocolate card base measures 5.5" square, and the sentiment wrapped around is computer generated. I immediately knew I wanted to use this Emerson quote for this card, which reads:
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
Love it!! My dad's birthday is coming up next month, so I figured this would be a perfect card for him. Whatcha think?
Ok, I'm up waaaaaaaaayyyyyy too late, so that's enough blabbing for now. See ya tomorrow, and thanks for hangin with me!
