Car Classics

We just got this brand new stamp set from Crafty Secrets in at work and I couldn't resist. These two cards will be part of a class I will be teaching in June at Scrap Arts. I'm not sure of the dates yet but I will post them as soon as I know.

I really wanted to try a side step card and here is what I came up with. All the stamps are from the new stamp set and I used black and white bazzill and the patterned red paper is from the Fancy Pants Rusted Sun collection. I colored the car and the flag with red watercolor pencil and went over it with an aqua brush. I could have used my prisma's but I wanted a worn vintage look and I used a fine black marker to go over a few details on the car. The rest of the items are stamped and cut out and some are layered on black card stock. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

For this card I wanted that old vintage black and white comic strip look. The entire background is all done with a variety of stamps from the set. I just kept filling up the spaces with as many stamps as I could fit. I then stamped my main image and twisted the layering pieces to give it a different look. The solid blocks of black add a bit of impact to the card. I edged all the pieces with Black Versa Magic ink.
I have 2 more items for this class and will post as soon as I get the pictures and details ready. Also have another class coming in June and will post those pics soon as well.
Until then, Happy Crafting.
