WHEEL YOU PLEASE BE SERIOUS????


I am here to tell ya, I used a wheel on this card. After all, the CHALLENGE for our SUO blog was to USE A WHEEL. And I used a wheel! I started out with vanilla cardstock and I ran the vintage wheel all over it with versamark ink. Then I colored it softly using the pastels. Then I stamped some images from Nature Walk right on top of the softly colored Vintage wheel images using black stazon ink. Then I stamped the bird on a piece of cardstock vellum and colored him with SU markers from behind. Then I adhered the bird onto my vintage background, and it looked pretty awesome with the images and vintage wheel showing thru the vellum, and then I stamped a few bees on top of that....so when you see this card in person, alot is going on but it's all good. Except in the PICTURE, you can't see the vintage wheel very well. Which was the whole bloomin' POINT. But honestly, I did use a wheel on my card. I really did, you just have to believe me. It's there. Look closer. It really is, I mean it, seriously, it's there. Happy Stamping everyone!! Until next time......
