Inkspirational - Designer's Choice - Vehicle

Happy weekend, everyone!  What are your plans for the next two days?  We are going to be puttering around the house and outside.  Loving the warmer, sunnier weather we are having.  :-). I know something that you could all do!  Play along with the next challenge over at Inkspirational!  It's Designer's Choice this time it is our sweet and talented teammate, Carol's turn.  :-)

And the theme is....Vehicles!  How fun!  I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I got this awesome die set from my fellow Teammate, Marina, for Christmas and I hadn't tried it yet.  It's so awesome I'm not sure why?!  I only used one of the great dies from the set so I'm going to have to break it out again soon.  It's a set of London's (England) skylines and a taxi, a phone booth, a double decker bus, etc.  Too cool.  Check out my card....

I just had to use the double decker bus when I heard what the challenge was going to be!  Isn't it awesome?!  First I stamped a background for it.  I used a older Hero Arts Postage stamp (it's hard to see because of the pale ink but it has Big Ben on it and says London at the top) that I inked up in SSS Sea Glass.  I stamped that twice.  Then, I stamped my splotches (STAMPlorations) in Dove Gray StazOn ink.  I took some watered down black ink and splattered it over top.  I took my sentiment stamp (STAMPlorations), which I had masked off the H before inking, and stamped it in black.  Then I attached my red die cut bus with some foam dots.   I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. Can't wait to try out the skyline dies now. :-)

I hope you pop on over to the blog and check out what the rest of the team made.  It's all so fabulous! I really appreciate your visit and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

We had a cool, wet weekend and looks like the same for today...rain needed, though, so it's a good thing (although not so great for my bike-riding husband).
