My Favorite Clear Dollar Sneak Peek Sample!
Another card made with the "Sometimes You're the Bug" set...to be released tomorrow! See the balloons tied to the back bumper? Just one of MANY images that come with this set (and its companion, "Bugs and Kisses") to help you jazz up your buggy! This has to be one of the most original group of images on the stamp market today, doncha think? For this "Baby Girl" card, I stamped the car in black pigment ink, embossed it with clear powder, and colored it with Copics (the license plate phrase -again, one of many choices- was stamped separately in regular ink). The balloon bundle was stamped on a separate scrap of white CS, colored, then cut out. I made the balloons shiny with Diamond Glaze (which I also used on the rearview mirror), and after they dried I attached them to the back of the car using foam adhesive for extra dimension. The center of the steering wheel is a pewter brad, and to "girly it up" a bit more, I added the Prima flower. The card base and colored layers are all Bazzill - I pulled out the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots embossing folder for the coral panel and used my jumbo scallop scissors on the yellow piece. Thanks again for stopping by, and please be sure to check out all that's new at Clear Dollar Stamps TOMORROW!
