A Beautiful Ride in Red

Hi!

I recently purchased the It's My Party DSP Stack. There a lots of bright colours and patterns in the DSP - perfect for happy, celebratory cards. Many of this flip sides have more subdued patterns though, and it's some of these subdued patterns I've used today on my card.


This card took a while to come together. I originally had it in a landscape orientation with the car looking like it was 'driving' along the Basic Black strip. It just wasn't working though. Rob had the idea of switching the orientation to portrait, which I obviously thought worked much better.


The VW was stamped and watercoloured on Shimmer Paper. It's really pretty paper, and handles the water very well. I used Real Red on the car, with a Soft Sky wash over the windows and Sahara Sand on the tires and metal bits of the car.


I used a second strip of the Basic Black DSP in the middle, with another Real Red banner.

Bye for now,

Tina

  1. Love this, Tina. It does look great with the portrait layout (nice work, Rob)but your fab choice of colours, papers & use of the fun banners really makes is look brilliant. Pinning!
