Loads of Love

I wanted to do a boys card for my first demo as all us crafters struggle with cards for boys and men, althoght stampin up make it much easier as they always have a set of stamps that you can use for the boys.
so I used Loads of Love ans Loads of Love accesories stamp sets, I stamped the car in basic black ink onto a piece of whisper white card I had already cut to size, using my stamp-a-mi-jig so I could position it exactly where I wanted it, then used the stamp-a-mi-jig to position the boy in the drivers seat, I have found with this stamp you need to be carefull not to apply to much pressure or you get very thick lines, I coloured it in using the blender pens and Night of navy, summer sun (becuase I don't have so saffron yet) and basic black for the Tyres and to make a grey for the alloys and bumpers.
Cut a tag using my sizzix die cutter and tag die out of whisper white card, stamped the saying in night of Navy, again using the stamp-a-mi-jig (I love this it makes perfect positioning easy) put some whisper white ribbon through the whole and used a brad to hold the tag on the card.
I matted the car on to brocade blue card and matted this onto so saffron card (I use my paper cutter to cut all piece's to size and the stamp-a-mi-jig to position them exactly where I want them), these I put onto the ballet blue card I had already cut and scored with the front folded in half. I really like this card but need to practise with the blender pens to get the colouring right when I make it at a workshop I may change to using my Aqua Painter instead.
