Hello friends! Well it is still stinkin' cold here in Western Washington... like down in the low 20's cold, but thankfully NO SNOW!!
I have a card for this week's Less is More challenge. As I normally do on a Saturday morning I checked out what the new challenge would be and my heart sank a bit... the challenge was to make a card with a sports or exercise theme. Once, again, I don't have many stamps that fit into that category. Then I remember this fun Our Daily Bread Designs set I have called Bicycle. People use bikes for exercise all the time and I have been wanting to make something using that set for ages. So...since time was short (the boys and I had a hair appointment in the early afternoon and then church after that) I got to work, but I forgot one little thing... this week is the dreaded ONE LAYER week at LIM. As I drove away from my house I suddenly realized that my card did not fit the challenge because it was more than one layer... darn!! With the stamp set still out on my counter this morning I got to work. The idea for the card came from a fellow crafty blogger, Christine, who made a lovely card using a bicycle. She colored only portions of her image, which is exactly what I did here. I stamped the bike and sentiment using Tuxedo Black ink and then colored only the flowers in the basket using the following Copic markers: G20, G21, G24, R81, R83 and R85. Probably took me about ten minutes.
Thanks for stopping by and thank you Christine for the inspiration!!
