I'm back on schedule and getting this post done while the challenge is still current! Hooray!
This week's S & S Midweek Throwdown Challenge is to make a card with a masculine theme either for an adult or child as the recipient. I had no difficulty with this one at all! I have had my creative eye turned to the masculine images of the motor vehicle industry frequently lately and knew exactly what image I wanted to use.
Isn't this motorcycle cool? I first saw it used on a card that Sandy posted on the Operation Write Home website during January. I did some research and found that it is a digital image available through (believe it or not) Stampin' Up! and is available here. I have seen this image colored and it looks really nice but for those of you who know my work I am sure you are not at all surprised that I elected to use the monochrome image!
The silver card stock is also from Stampin' Up and I ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. The layout and embossing idea was CASEd from this image on SCS (thank you for sharing Shelly923.)
I don't make it a habit to put horizontal words vertically on a card but felt that in this case the sentiment did not detract from the focal image and may even compliment it. What do you think? Please leave me a comment :)
Happy Stamping and God Bless.
