I started with a base of Baja Blue. I sponged Always Artichoke and then a little black on the bottom. I then stamped the trees from Tim Holtz. I did my sky by using a torn paper towel and Whisper White ink. I did a reverse mask and stamped the moon. I stamped the motorcycle in black and used a red marker on the tank. I added glossy accents on the mirrors and the bumbers. The chrome will reflect color on a motorcycle so thats why I used the glossy accents. I then used my white pen to add snow. I wish I hadn't done that but I sure wasn't going to start all over! I mounted this on Cherry Cobbler. Hope you like this.

That's a cool scene. Reminds me of when they do the Toys for Tots motorcycle ride, it's always sooooo cold. Great bunch of people. Your clouds look great, I've tried that technique but it never comes out as good as yours. Tfs a great card!

Ooh, I love this! You nailed the motorcycle part of the challenge and made a card appropriate for the time of year! Whoo hoo! Paper towel sky? Amazing! I love it! A very nice little scene....and a wonderful way to bring a smile to Neil! Oh, and about the white snow with a pen, I disagree with you! Its a wonderful finishing touch! You did good Sylvia!
