Speed Wobbles!

Thank you for popping in to visit.

I needed a masculine card but ran out of inspiration, so I 'cased' a card I made last year (here). I wanted to give an impression of movement on the card this time.  

So to do that I masked and did a second and third generation impression.

The result, to my eyes, looks as though the bikes are coming out of the fog!! This effect is added to by the sponging on the bottom edge!

To finish the card I stamped the sentiment and rubbed some chalk across the top of the card to make a sky.

This panel was then placed over a blue layer and them mounted onto the bright orange card base.
