One Layer Spring Bicycle Scene

Hey everyone! I have a fun card to share today using some Art Impressions stamps! This cute little bicycle reminds me of warmer weather and I thought it would be fun to create a one layer scene using it.  

Creating the scene
Stamps: Art Impressions Enjoy the Ride, WC Mountain set
Dies: Rectangle Double Stitch Die
Ink: Gina K. Designs Amalgam Obsidian
Cardstock: Neenah 80lb Solar White

To start I stamped the bicycle on to a piece of Neenah cardstock. I used the third from smallest Rectangle die and a pencil to trace a frame for a window. Tracing both the outside and inside of the die. Using post it notes, I masked off the frame and stamped the two mountains from the WC Mountain set. First stamping the pair of mountains on the right, then masking with another post it note and stamping the other set of mountains. I used Copic frindly ink for all my black ink stamping. 

I started coloring with Copic markers. I'll have the list below of all the colors I used. I'm trying a different way to show what colors I used besides just listing the numbers. Hopefully you find it useful!

I wanted a teal, gray, brown, and coral color combination for this card, with lots of white space. For the frame I erased the pencil lines until they were almost to light to see and started sketching the frame in with a E35 Copic Marker. I started with the light tone so that I cold touch up any mistakes or unevenness with the the darkest tone marker. This took a bit of time but was easy enough. I did it this way because I didn't want to fussy cut the bicycle. 😊


Stencil: Dylusions Staggered Brick
Ink: Distress Ink Fired Brick, Versafine Claire Nocturne
Die: Art Impressions Rounded Rectangle double stitch die set
Cardstock: Simon Says Stamp Smoke

I used an older brick stencil. This one is hard to find but there are some great brick stencils available. Anyone of those would work. I might have to retire this one and get an updated one! Usng a makeup blending brush I added Fired Brick ink through the stencil. I didn't mask off anything at this point. Instead I used one of the smaller makeup blending brushes and took my time blending the ink around the frame and bicycle. Just be careful around your coloring but I think this makes for a really cool fade look. 

Then I added in the ground layer and shadows around and underneath the bicycle. Before I stamped the sentiment I did run this panel through my die cutting machine with the largest Rounded Rectangle die.

I stamped the sentiment with a pigment black ink and added a layer of gray cardstock to a A2 card base. Then popped up the colored panel with foam dimensional tape before layering that over the top. 

Thank you so for joining me today! Happy Stamping.
