You Drive Me Happy!

Hi Crafty Friends,

A while ago I found this fun Loralie Art Stamps stamp set on Ebay, seeing how these stamps are so hard to get down here in Australia and I do think they are fun I had to add this one to my stash. I have finally gotten around to using it to make a card.

When I started to make my card today, the only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to play with some of the new Distress Oxide inks that had just arrived. I started by creating a rainbow background, but when I went through my stamps I spied this image and decided to change tact ... I use that rainbow background some other time.

I used the new Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide inks to create the sky on the background of my card ... I have no doubt I will be pulling out these colors for more sky background in the future.

I die cut the panel using Simon Says Stamp Wonky Rectangles, I also die cut a piece of grey cardstock using the same die and then cut it at an angle to become the road.

I pulled out an older sentiment stamp which works well with the car and added that to the top left hand corner of the card using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.

I added white gel pen to the girls dress and various other places on the image.

To finish off the front of the card I added some Nuvo Drops.

For the inside of the card I die cut white and grey cardstock using the Wonky Rectangles die set that I had used on the front, again trimming the grey at an angle to replicate the front.

I sponged the two Distress Oxides inks on two different pieces of white cardstock and then die cut the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from A Way with Words from each of these panels and adhered them to the top of my card. I added white gel pen to the bottom 'birthday' sentiment.
