As soon as I saw Penny Black's new slapstick/Cling Hot Rod!, 40-224, I knew it was a must-have as I'm married to a car nut! If we won the lottery he would have a car collection, no doubt. It arrived in time for me to use it for his Father's Day card & I finished it the night before--usual for me--LOL! However, it just didn't look quite right & so later that day I re-stamped & attached the car to his card. He generally leaves the cards I make for him on the coffee table for several weeks, so I see it every day. I've still never been happy with it & so today I stamped the car several more times & finally I got a version that looks much better on the card. The car was first inked with Distress Paints spun sugar & seedless preserves & stamped on cream cardstock. Then I overstamped with Versafine Onyx Black using my stamp positioner to get my 2-tone paint job. I trimmed it out & attached it to the foam tape still stuck on the card--just had to add a little Glossy Accents since it wasn't sticky anymore. The background is made with Penny Black's snow dust, 4102K, because I knew hubby liked the trees since he had me use that stamp on a sympathy card he sent. Another adjustment today was sponging on some darker ink at the bottom of the card.
Kind of strange to re-make a card after you give it, but he didn't mind & I'm much happier now. I'm also entering Penny Black Saturday Challenge & Casual Fridays.
By the way, did you see the sneak peak on the Penny Black blog? Looks like wonderful new products! Enjoy the rest of your weekend & hopefully I'll catch up with all of you soon as I have a week off. Thank you so much for stopping by.
