Three Clover Thursday - Planes...Trains and Automobiles


Happy Thursday, hope you've been having a good week. It's been quiet around our house, since the boys went back to school on Tuesday, even though they won't admit it, I think they're happy to be back!

Today Kerry issued the following 3CTC - Trains, planes, and automobiles! A card with some kind of powered vehicle. I don't think Stampin' Up! has many images left like this in the catalog - so I reached for Route 66 from Artistic Outpost, I just *love* the images on this plate.


The motorcycle is stamped in Black Archival on White card stock. I used a SAMJ to add the sentiment in Ruby. The background was created using the Depth of Field Technique in the following inks: Going Grey, Ruby Red, Black. All white edges where sponged in Grey ink.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Route 66
Ink - Going Grey, Ruby Red, Black Archival
Card Stock - Black, White
Other - Sponge Dauber, SAMJ

Love this card! Although I'm not a big motorcycle fan, you really used images and color to make a stunning presentation. Is the depth of field technique a tj one? I'm just recently back and haven't really gotten up to speed. I will explore the techniques and see if I can find it. Your card has inspired me to try this technique. Nice job!

Yes, the Depth of Field is a TJNL technique. I'm glad I could be of inspiration!
