Two of my favorite challenges, Make It Monday from Papertrey Ink and CASology are coming together for this card I whipped up really fast today. We buy our milk fresh from the dairy and today I will give this card to our favorite farmer's son, Payton, who has recently passed his behind the wheel test and is on the road!
Following Laurie Willison's video HERE I masked off my background and then split it in half. I inked up the blue skies and then reversed my mask to create some green. It is hard to see but I moved a diagonal mask on the grass a few times to give some dimension. After I was done I thought about how inappropriate it is to have a car on the grass oopie! Oh well, you KNOW how student drivers can be heeheehee. Next I actually cut out the car from the background so that I could fussy cut out the window and lay it over my "Tye Dye" bug's windshield giving the illusion that you are seeing through the windshield. I layered a piece of black cs behind my panel and popped it up on my card base. I also popped up the car over the negative space so you could see the black underneath a little : )
I wanted to make this a fun yet not too girly card for Payton so I let it stay sort of plain. I did, however have a brain storm after the entire card was done and added glossy accents on the windshield!
ummm... note to self:
don't stir the glossy accents after it is on the card.
The texture is terrible and bumpy like he needs a new windshield already! LOL Oh well! he'll love it .... mostly because we are including some gas money! giggles.
That is it for me today. Please check out the challenge at CASology and Make It Monday there is a whole lot of fun! happening in Blogland this week!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!!
