Here's my card for today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge - our inspiration is a cool motorcycle gas tank teapot!
I had this 'I don't know what you call it symbol stamp' from Waltzingmouse that looked pretty close to the flames on the tank/teapot.
I inked the stamp with Versamark and then yellow, orange and red, stamped it on a white panel, clear embossed it, cut it with a petite oval nestie then inked over it in black before taking it out of the die.
I embossed the sentiment in silver on a white panel and again, die cut it and sponged over it with black before taking it out of the die.
This card will be going to Neil who recently had a motorcycle accident and although he most likely will not ride again - still loves 'bikes'.
