It's another Timeless Talk card day. This time I am featuring the bicycle from the set. Thank you Stampin' Up! for giving us this set. Love it!!
The Quatrefancy Speciality DSP offers so many bright & cheerful choices. I like the "nautical " look provided by the combo of Island Indigo, Pool Party & Calypso Coral so I chose an Island Indigo pattern from the dsp.
In my first attempt, I stamped the bike image full strength, then moved across the card without reinking. But, the card seemed off balance so I stamped full strength in the middle and then stamped the image again on the left & right, without reinking.
Allthough I could have kept the white space, I decided to add the dsp with just a 1/4" border on top. After adding the banners, it seemd like they needed more definition so I added thin strips of dsp to the top of the calypso coral banner & the bottom of the pool party banner.
But then my bicycles seemed to be floating. I did not have much space underneath them but I needed something. Enter the Needlepoint Border. It provided the grounding I was looking for plus an added bonus of texture. But then it became apparent that I needed a balance for the Calypso Coral banner. I used the circle from Itty Bitty Punch Pack to punch some spoke covers out of calypso coral c.s.
In order to assure that my sentiment was straight, i used my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig. I sure seem to use this a lot! Does this mean that I have a crooked eye? Rhinestones added the final touch. But looking at it now, I think that my wheel covers need a rhiestone center. I will be right back…..
