Inky Bicycles

I have a couple of bicycle themed thank you cards to share today...using stamps from the 'Bicycles' set by Hero Arts. I stamped them in Versamark, then heat embossed them using clear powder, before blending Distrss Inks over the top. On the one on the left I used 'Wild Honey', Spiced Marmalade' and 'Fired Brick', and on the card on the right I used 'Stormy Sky', Faded Jeans' and Chipped Sapphire'. The sentiments are also by Hero Arts, and are from the 'What a Life' set.

Challenges for these cards:

CAS simple looking card but so many techniques involved to creat the whole look. I am very jealous of your embossing! Thank you for joining us at Crafty Sentiments Designs for our anything goes challenge. Kerry, DT Member xx
