Wow, I actually have my Make it Monday card finished on a Monday! This week's challenge is titled Ink Blending Techniques. Good thing I picked up a Tim Holtz Ink Applicator on Saturday, because it was just what I needed for this technique. I started by applying two shades of yellow ink (Barely Banana and So Saffron) to the center of my cardstock and then added 3 different shades of blue (Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, and Night of Navy) around the outer edges. I did this so that when I adhered my car it would look like headlights shining into the darkness. For the grass, I used some Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss ink. Then, I cut a piece of Smokey Shadow for the road and used my white gel pen to add the dashed line. I die cut the car and colored it using my Copic Markers. I used PTI's For the Graduate set to add numbers to the license plate and adhered red jewels for taillights. Last, I cut out the car window and added a piece of a transparency sheet behind it. I wanted this card to look like a photograph, so I just adhered my main panel to a piece of white cardstock. Since it is supposed to look like a photo, I used Library Ledger to add a "date stamp" to the upper right hand corner. Want to know why I used 2005? Because I always forget to set the date on my camera so, every time I have a picture printed it is stamped 2005. Apparently 2005 is the default setting. Nice, huh? I hope you are enjoying your Monday! Thanks for stopping by.
