Masculine Motorcycle Card



Hi everyone, today I would like to share this masculine card with you all. The top image is an image from an image sheet by Syta van Gelderen (170205) with plenty of motorcycle images to choose from, and the background is created with Lindy’s Magicals.


I first cut the motorcyle image to size (these images are fairly large, so I decided to use a fairly large base card : 15x15 cm) and matted it onto craft coloured card stock using liquid glue, after distressing the edges of both rectangles.


For my white background panel I die cut a square panel from watercolour paper. Onto this panel I stamped the sentiment (this one is from the Kaisercraft “Scrap Yard” stamp set) using black waterproof ink (Archival “Jet Black”).


Next I applied some TCW Modeling Paste over a stencil (this one is TCW901s) using a palette knife and set aside to dry.


When dry I can now add colour to my background panel using a Lindy’s Magical in the colour “Tibetan Poppy Teal” (which contrasts nicely with the warm/gold elements in this project). I add the powder to the panel using a fan brush, spray with water which makes the colour run and dry with my heat tool when I like what I have. This I repeat until the panel is as dark as I prefer.



To add some extra interest I splatter onto the panel using the “Chocolate” Coliro Pearl Color and also dry this with my heat tool.


I create two extra mats for this square panel, one from mirror gold card stock and one from chocolate brown card stock (the last one I also distress).


Time to put my card together: I adhere the three square panels together using liquid glue, and than adhere this combination onto the craft coloured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. The only thing I have to do now is to adhere the motorcycle image onto the card also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s card project, I wish you a creative day!
