Welcome Crafty Friends,
Today blog features the Build A Bike, Honey Cuts From Honey Bee Stamps.
Not everyone has a stash of different coloured cardstock, so today I show you how to use your white cardstock and inks to achieve the same look. In this instance I used Oxides but Die, Pigment or Archival would also be fine.
Bicycle Builder Honey Cuts ( Honey Bee Stamps)
Enjoy Stamp Set ( Honey Bee Stamps)
Trellis Stencil (Altenew)
110lb Cardstock ( Neenah)
Distress Oxides In, Dried Marigold, Speckled Egg, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, and Hickory Smoke. (Ranger)
Distress Oxides Sprays in Spiced Marmalade and Mermaid Lagoon ( Ranger)
Crystal Glaze (Nuvo)
Sparkle Pen ( Spectrum Noir)
White Jelly Roll Pen ( Sakura)
Cut a piece of Neenah cardstock down to 5 1/2"
Using the trellis stencil and a blending tool blend on Speckled Egg Oxide Ink.
Then using your sprays, splatter your stencilled background in both colours. I remove the nozzle from the bottle and splash the ink from the straw part of the applicator.
Die cut your bicycle parts all of them out of your 110lb cardstock.
Then using your ink pads add colour each part of your die cuts. I used Dried Marigold on the frame.
Then I used Brushed Corduroy on to the handles.
Then Hickory Smoke on the wheel.
I then attached this to my background.
Before adding the basket, I stamped on my sentiment as I wanted to raise the basket. This would have stopped me being able to use the Misti.
Once stamped I then colour my basket in Antique Linen and again added shading with Brush Corduroy. Using mounting tape I positioned it on to the bike. Using a white Jelly Roll pen I added high lights to the basket and wheel.
I found some spare die cuts from my build a cart card, featured last week. I popped them in the basket. but you could use anything and ink them with your pads.
Lastly I added, a Sparkle Pen and Crystal drops to my "enjoy" sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks blog post,
I'll be back next week with a quick and easy Thank you card
Happy Paper Crafting and God Bless
