Wheely Fun...Inkspirational Challenge #107~Designer's Choice (Vehicles), Cute Card Thursday #422~Add a Quotation,


Hello,

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #107~Designer's Choice, where I, as the designer choosing, opted for *VEHICLE* as this round's inspiration.


Planes, trains and automobiles...and buses, scooters, skateboards, helicopters...plenty of possibilities!  Wonderfully talented Tanja is joining us this week, along with my stellar teammates:  Pia, Sandie, Shauna, Marina, Kim, Nonni.  Their vehicle-themed cards are sheer delights!

In two week's time, the cycling racing season will begin in our province, and I'll be standing road-side or in follow-cars behind the peleton, clipboard and stop watch in hand, ready to take on my officiating role. I'm  ready!  That said: just makes sense that my inspiration cards feature a bike....

This is a digi image (which I don't have talent for showcasing in any other fashion beyond 'print, colour and mount') from Pink Petticoat, before the business closed.  The images are coloured with polychromos pencils and covered with Glossy Accents.  The set, in total, has eight different sentiments, including one sentiment-free, which I used for the "Thanks A Bunch" card (sentiment from Altenew).  In real life, they're quite cute (so says my husband...although *this* bike is a far cry from his streamlined, under 14 lbs, fancy-dancy road bikes (and no way would he be seen on a bike with a basket *grin*)...

Here they are...hope you *wheely* like them....Oh yes, the papers are from Lawn Fawn...





Your turn!

Looking forward to seeing your *Vehicle*-themed cards in the Inkspirational gallery!

  2. Oh my gosh, I adore that bicycle image! Adore! So sweet. And I really like how you got three cards that are all so pretty and unique in their own way using that image. I have got to remember that! Great use of your pencils and the pattern paper. There are so many things to like about these cards!! Thanks so much for sharing, Carol. Wouldn't it be fun to do your stopwatching duties on one of these types of bikes? I think that'd be so fabulous. Hugs!! :)
