Fashionable Stamping Challenge #39 and Simon Says Stamp and Show

I created this 6"x6" card for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges #39 - Trains, Planes & Automobiles. I always have trouble with masculine type of ideas but the Fashionable Stamping Designers had beautiful projects that served as great inspiration for me.

The background was created using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and a Tim Holtz's stamp. I really liked the way it turned out, but unfortunately as it goes, backgrounds are covered by the main image - that's why I also included a picture of the background. :)   I stamped the car, tore the edges and inked them, added Glossy Accents on the windows & headlights and added Stickles on parts of the image to give it a little "pop". The "tickets" and the quote are also Tim Holtz's stamps.

This week at the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, they're asking us to show them what we are known for. Well, I really don't know if I'm known for a specific detail, but most of the time I like to create my own backgrounds and also like to use meaningful quotes on most of my projects. I try to create a 'Happy Birthday, Hello, Get Well', etc., and have created them, but somehow I always lean towards quotes with a deep, emotional meaning.

I hope that you enjoyed my project this week and thank you for stopping by!!! :)

Nicie...I really like your card. It's colorful and I love the color palette. Love the big splash of the car across the front! That really makes a statement. Your splattered background really looks good, too. Love the sentiment! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
