Red Bicycle


I had to use this stamp, I saw it on Pinterest and knew I had to have it and with the Less is More colour challenge this week helped to work out the colours of the card.
So the blue papers were already on my desk so it was just a case of stamping the balloon stamp a few times and cutting them out.
The bicycle was coloured using a red polychromo pencil another reason for loving them more than Prismacolor is that you can sharpen then to quite a sharp point so it would get into the smallest of areas without going over the lines.
The sentiment from the Up and Away set, I think this could be a new favourite.
Whoops I forgot to use a grey pencil for shadowing under the wheels, looks like those balloons are floating the bike away.

What a brilliant card. Less certainly is more with this one. Super bike image and great design.
I do clean my polymer stamps with just water but although I can't remember doing it - I may have cleaned it years ago when I first got it with Stazon cleaner and was not so stamp care savvy. I have e mailed Roy to see if he's got one tucked away somewhere. I might be lucky.
