"Varrrooooooom!!!!"

Happy Sketch Wednesday everyone!!! I'm still working with the few QKD stamps that I have as I anxiously await the big order that I placed!!! I'm amazed at how much I've been able to do with just 3 stamps!!! I have another card that I just did to play around with this Distressed Speedometer but this is the sketch card that I have to show you today so that'll have to wait for another day!!

If you've found your way here from Alex's blog you're on the right HOP! If not you can start at the beginning and hope your entire way through everyone's fabulous work!!!

I am finding it so inspiring working for QKD as it's always so nice to have a a reason for purposeful creation. Not that creating for creatings sake isn't just fabulous in and of itself but to be given a challenge or an assignment is somehow different for me. It pushes me to do just THAT much better or try that much harder to go out of my comfort zone. I'm not sure that makes much sense but it does to me! =)

Anyhoo!! Onto this week's creation!!!

"Varrrroooommmm!!!!" Card:

Envelope: 7 x 5 1/4
Card Base: 6 3/4 x 5 - 12x 12 SU! Basic Black cardstock
L1: 2 1/4 X 5 - SU! Summer Sun with edges distressed
L2: 2 X 5 - Reminisce - Road Signs
L3: 6 3/4 X 2 - SU! Summer Sun
L4: 6 3/4 x 1 3/4 - Reminisce - Road Signs "Caution" - As stated above, I'm waiting on a large package from QKD so I do not have a QKD sentiment to use so I used the words in the paper for the sentiment.
L5: 4 1/4 x 3 1/2 - Paper Source - Red
L6: 4 3 1/4 - Reminisce - Road Signs
L7: 2 1/2 circle cut with my Cricut - Paper Source - Red
L8: QKD - Distressed Speedometer stamped on PTI White Cardstock inked with Brilliance Craft Ink in Graphite Black and heat embossed.

Embellishments:

  • Hambly brand rub ons - arrows - after placing these on the card I used my sanding block to lightly distress these so that they looked more like worn paint on a road.
  • Silver "piping" is actually soldering pipe that I swiped from my hubby's workbench ;) (you never know what you'll find down there!!!)
  • Every level (except 5 & 6) is lifted up and adhered on double stacked 3D glue dots - I use Zots brand. I had to double stack them in order to accommodate for the soldering piece as I didn't want to the layers to be too bumpy.

Thanks for reading!!!

I hope everyone's having a very creative week!!!
