My base is a generic white. I stamped the tree from Nature Silhouettes/SU with Versa Mark and used Black Detail ep. Then stamped the Motorcycle. I cut out a mask for the Motorcycle (very carefully!) and sponged my sun using Reverse Masking technique. I used Daffodil, Apricot and Tangerine. I colored the bike with Copics. I wanted to resemble chrome but that's hard to do. I then used a Red Spica pen on the tank. It was a dull red so I colored over it with an SU Real Red Marker. The glitter look still shows through. The picture does not do it justice. That tank looks just like a real one. Put Just Ride on it from an MFP set. Then I put Crystal Effects on the two bumpers. It did make it look more like chrome. Inside I am going to put a senti that says" You're not old...you're classic. This is for a friend that is one of our best friends. He was just here last Saturday and left to go home on his bike.
Hope you like it. The Ways to Use It Challenge is to Man Up. Well my Dad is gone and I needed a birthday card so this fit the bill. This was a fun challenge. Thanks.
This is also for the TSC0615 challenge. If you would like to play along add TSC0615 to the keywords. The theme is travel.
