A roaring good time

The weeks are flying away and we're already at the end of February. And today we are here with a new challenge at The Male Room Challenge.This time its's an easy one, Anything goeas with an optional challenge of using no designer papers.

For my card I have used the My Monthly hero kit that arrived on my door a couple of days ago. I started with my background wich I created using distress oxcide inks (mermaid lagoon and faded jeans) through the art deco stencil that came with my kit. I also glued on a piece of black cardstock at the bottom part to ground my car. I glued on a strip of golden ribbon to mimick the yellow stripe in the middle of the road.

I stamped my car and gold embossed it before coloring it using my copic markers (W7, W5, W3, W1, C9, C7, Y11). I made some highlights using a white gel pen. I popped the car up on foam squares and glued it on the "road". For the sentiments and music notes I stamped them directly on the background and clear embossed them.

I then glued my card panel on a piece of gold mirror cardstock for a thin, shiny border (barely visible on my pictures) and finally glued the whole thing on a white card base using foam tape to create even more dimension.

I hope you will join us the next couple of weeks.
