Another Color Throwdown Challenge

Hi friends - once again, I LOVE the colors for this week's Color Throwdown (ctd459) challenge (photo below) - red, black and white.

I made two cards, both using the adorable bicycle from Gina K's Sentimental Summer card kit. On the first one, I sponged the background and die cut a circle towards the top. I stamped, embossed and die cut the bike then colored with Copics. I stamped the sentiment and then at the VERY LAST minute, I decided to make it into a shaker card using some Queen and Company filler. I glued a few throughout the circle so not everything would fall to the bottom.

I cut two more bicycles and layered them together to create some sturdiness and dimension then following along the 'shine' theme, I added glossy accents to the bike. Clear wink of stella and a few polka dots finish it off.

The second card was created with the circle I cut from the first card. It's REALLY hard to see, but I stamped the bike in gray and the sentiment in black. I layered the circle onto this fabulous black/white background created with Right at Home's watercolor background stamp; several layers of VersaFine black ink provides such solid coverage!
Look really close, you an see the bike in gray ink. :D

Thanks for stopping by; hope you had a GREAT weekend. Take care!
