Adventure Bound on a Bicycle!

Hey peeps!

I think I need to offset some of the chill factor (brrr… snow) from yesterday’s card with something a bit warmer.  So how about a cute bike ride on a summer day?  And some cheery yellow?  I think that will do the trick… so here is sweet summer card featuring Bicycle Chloe from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.


I colored Chloe with Copic markers and accented with a few touches of Glossy Accents and Crystal Accents.  I shaded around the image with B000, B000 and B00 Copic markers and softened the edges a bit using a Colorless Blender pen.


After stitching the image to a piece of Basic Black cardstock using my sewing machine I punched a hole with my Crop-a-dile and set a jumbo eyelet.  I needed a little extra room on the right side to tie the yellow bow and this was the perfect way to do so!  I also added a piece of ivory crocheted ribbon and attached it using the Tiny Attacher stapler by Tim Holtz.  I’m not usually a big fan of staples but these are cute and dainty and fit it nicely with all of the other metal accents I used.


Hmmm… I think I need to get my bike out of my garage and go for a ride!  How about you?
