A Bumpy Road

The current challenge over at the Hero Arts’ blog includes a thinking of you theme. So to symbolise “I’m with you”, I decided to connect two die cut bicycles to form a tandem.

A Bumpy Road
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Flourish Background, Envelope Pattern and Everyday Sayings

To start with, I inked a piece of card with tumbled glass distress ink and then stamped the flourish background using the same ink. Then I applied distress inks (shabby shutters, pumice stone and antique linen) to another piece of white card to form the hills and bumpy road. This was stamped with the envelope pattern using shabby shutters distress ink. The bicycles, from Hero Arts, were cut using my new Silhouette Cameo (I’m in love!) and I just did a bit of welding and cutting to form the tandem. To finish I added some heart gems and baker’s twine.

Great job with that tandem! I love my Silhouette too, although it's not a Cameo (sigh). Beautiful scene you created and great idea for a "thinking of you" card.

You are a master, my dear! Love everything about this card - great backgrounds, the brilliant way you used the twine....and I can't believe that you designed your own tandem bike! I refuse to go electronic, but I can see the possibilities. Thanks for sharing.
