I decided to make another card for the CDS Challenge to use three shades of blue. This time I'm using the CDS Sometimes You're A Bug stamp set. I stamped the VW bug colored with a light blue & darker blue prisma-colored pencils & goo gone, then cut it out. I put silver stickles on the rear view mirror, and some diamond stickles on the tail lights. I used Aileene's Paper Glaze on the windows & windshield. I restamped the convertable top & license plate colored them and cut them out, popped up with foam dots. The license plate is outlined with a black glaze pen, and on the center of the plate, and the bumper a clear glitter pen was used. I was trying to watch a Tim Holtz video on using the rock candy distress paint, but gave up, my wireless connection here at the cabin isn't that great for videos. If the video is 5 minutes, it seems like it takes two hours to get through it. But I dabbed some rock candy over the paper glaze anyway in hopes it would crack, and I believe it did, there is a rough texture to it, I sponged stormy sky distress ink over it, but I definitely need more practice, and not such a small area. I stamped the sentiments in not quite navy. Thanks for looking and any comments.
