Cars at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week it's my turn to choose the theme for Cardz 4 Guyz, and I've chosen Cars. Cars of any type, modern or vintage, racing cars or family cars - it's up to you, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you create.

For my own card, I stamped the retro Mini image using an old Linda Luckin stamp, then coloured and fussy cut it. The background is silver mirri embossed with the docrafts Galvanised Steel embossing folder, topped with a piece of chalkboard tape that has white lines like the centre of a road drawn along it using a white gel pen, and some striped washi tape. I went round and round in circles trying to get the stripes on the two bands of tape to run in opposite directions. I still can't see why it wasn't just a case of turning it upside down, but it didn't seem to work!

Some corrugated card for more texture and a bold sentiment from a Kanban die cut sheet were a restful way to finish the card after losing the Battle of The Washi Tape.

  2. Great card Jane, love the use of the metallic card ( reminds me I have some somewhere!). Thanks for your comment, the antiquing spray was from Inkylicious years ago and the sentiment is a freebie from creative stamping.

  5. Great card Jane, perfect for the males of the species. I think you would need to reverse the tape to get the stripes going the other way, of course then you'd have the sticky side face up!
