The Paper Players #55 Colour Challenge

Hi Everyone!

This week at the Paper Players, Lesley has a fantastic colour challenge for you.

As soon as I seen this weeks colours, I just knew I had to do a masculine card. My all time favourite stamp for male cards has to be Motorcycle. 

I stamped the motorcycle with Black StazOn onto watercolour paper, then coloured it in using ink pads and blender pen. You can't really see it in the photo, but I also spritzed the Poppy Parade card stock with my new colour spritzer and  Crumb Cake marker to "grunge" it up a bit. The design was based on last weeks Stamping 411 sketch challenge. I loved the sketch but didn't get a chance to play.

We hope that you will join the The Paper Players this week! Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!

Fantastic guy card Sandra! Love the Poppy flames on the bike and you're right the sketch is a keeper! The linen thread is the perfect accent for the scallops! LOVE it!

Excellent card my friend. Love that bright lattice poppy background and the little flash of red on Motorbike.

Sandra I love the motorcycle stamp, especially for a guy (however I have done it in pink for a gal pal of mine} and it always looks great in any color. Love your coloring and touch of twine is perfect.
PS: THANKS for picking me on last challenge. I've been so busy with my visiting 3 grandkids, I JUST noticed I won!! I was sooooooooo excited! It just made my day! Hugs.
