Desert Sunset (Route 66)
Double Trouble Challenge #31 is calling for a theme of "Vacation with Embossing" for this new challenge running from Monday, June 17, 2019 through Sunday, June 30, 2019. Our partner, Pile It On #155, is asking for a "Transportation/Vacation" theme so this is my card, featuring the twist of using a road sign. US Route 66 is a historic highway that started in Chicago and ended in Los Angeles. There was even a song written about it.
The background was sponged with sunset colors then embossed with clouds. The mountains were die cut. A landscape die was used to provide the desert floor with a horizon. The travel trailer, fire and cacti were stamped, colored with Copic Alcohol Markers, fussy cut and adhered. The road sign was a digital download. The mountains and road sign were adhered with foam tape for dimension. The inside was decorated with another digital download of a similar sign with the words, "Get Your Kicks on Route 66."
We welcome you to participate with us at Double Trouble #31 and our partner, Pile It On #155. Visit the blogs to find out all about these challenges. You could win a prize!
