A bit mod !

First of all I would just like to share that I've won the Pan Pastels giveaway over on the lovely Lin's blog ! Can't tell you how made up I am ! So, now that the excitement's over, the card I'm sharing is one I made for a card order. I was a little nervous about doing this one as the brief was black, white and silver, which I don't normally do. Anyhow, the lovely Chris Dark came to my rescue with a fabulous image, as the other part of the brief was for it to have a Lambretta on it !



So I decided with the colour restrictions it had to be 'mod' ! I started by masking off the white card and sponging Black Soot DI to create the black and white stripes. I then used my Scor-Pal to create the black panel with the scored lines. I typed the word Lambretta in different sizes on my PC and used that as the background to the image. The image has been shaded with Pro-Markers and I've added some Glossy Accents to the lights.

The numbers are cut using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market die, covered with Black Soot DI and then Glossy Accents. The frame is on the tag die by Tim Holtz and I've cut it from metal that has been mounted onto humungo tape and black card. I then cut out the inner piece so that the numbers would fit, and used this cut out piece as a frame for the text. A few nail heads and a piece of ribbon and that was it ! I kept it quite simple as I didn't feel grungey was the right thing for the person this is intended for.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

We've had a lovely day today, we've been up to the Peak District, which is only 30 minutes from us. It's so relaxing to sit in the sun and watch the world go by, I didn't want to come home ! I hope you've all managed to get out and about in this glorious weather.......before it disappears next week !
