CDS Sneak Peek - Motorcycle Mania


I'm a girly girl in every sense of the word but when I saw Motorcycle Mania I thought - how fun!!!! It's a great set for anyone who has a motorcyclist in the family or a wannabe biker. I wanted to challenge myself with a masculine set - which I think I've done. The first card came together quite nicely. I'm just starting to use Tombow Markers... and can I say I NEED them all now! I'm slowly accumulating them from Clear Dollar Stamps. Sooner or later, they'll all be mine. Believe it or not - this card took quite a few turns. I had totally different paper picked out but when I finished coloring my image in a very vibrant blue - I realized the DP didn't match so I started searching for more DP. I eventually found this paper but then the color of blue I had used needed to be toned down a bit and out came my Not Quite Navy Marker (from SU). I really like how it came together - and what guy card would be complete without some sparkly silver brads and ribbon. Hehe - I just can't stay away from bling.

For my second card, I really did stick with the DP's I had chosen before coloring the motorcycle. I wanted to keep this card simple and focus on the image. I used my Silver Gel Pen to bring out a "chrome" look to the bike. This image was colored using my SU Markers (didn't have any Tombow's at the time). I like how the sentiment is popping out from underneath the main image. I finished the card off with a few simple brads.
