Scooting By to Say...
Sidenote: The More Mustard color looks very orange in my photos. Wish I knew more about photography!
On a white cardstock card base, two panels of cardstock, Marina Mist and More Mustard, were adhered. The scooter was stamped on white cardstock to be colored. I was disappointed with the mustard marker - it was much darker than the cardstock, so I paper-pieced the mustard cardstock onto the scooter. The blue area was colored with a Marina Mist marker. A black marker was used to color the handlebars and light rims as well as the zigzag on the tire. It seems that motorcycles should be really clean and shiny, so clear Wink of Stella was added all over and the headlight was covered in Glossy Accents.
The top layer of white cardstock was brushed with Marina Mist and More Mustard inks. Black cardstock was added to depict the road and the scooter was backed with foam tape and adhered. The sentiment was stamped along with two additional banners, and popped up across the top of the card. The inside was decorated with a Happy Birthday die cut. Lastly, the tiny black star was stamped on a banner, the scooter and inside the card.
