Life Is Short, Enjoy The Ride

Happy Halloween! I hope you have a save and fun evening.

As you know I've recently been accepted as an affiliate to Art Impressions! They sent me a couple stamp sets and I made a card yesterday using 1 of them, #5186 - Enjoy The Ride, but it is no longer available. It is a very cute set!

I used some other retired products from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey so the links below is only for current products.

I made a video while making this card and you can check that out by clicking on my YouTube link and looking for the Oct. 30 video.  I also have oodles of other videos for your viewing.

The framed piece that the bike is adhered to is from a retired FSJ paper pack called Project Me Prints. And the yellowish and bluish card stocks are discontinued. I was just wanting to play with this set so made no real effort to use current products.  I used my self made glue sponge to add adhesive to the sprigs since they would have been a bit interesting to add glue any other way. Maybe a glue pen would work good.

I colored the bike with Color Burst pencils. I really like these pencils! You can use a blending stump with a tough of baby oil to blend though I didn't do that here.

I will probably donate this card to Youth On Their Own in Tucson, AZ through our local stamp group.  I'll just add a birthday greeting inside  I did order the die needed for the other stamp set and a few more stamps to start up my collection.  Just click on the AI! link in the side bar and check out all the amazing stamps and products they have!!
