On Your Bike

Welcome - so glad to be here again and know that you visit.

I was inspired by Libby Hickson and her series of posts on the Tour de France, and her general love of bicycles to buy a set of bicycle stamps recently from Hero Arts.  This is my first card using that set.


I know the recipient has ridden a lot, so this image was appropriate.


I stamped the image in black ink, and also the sentiment, and added the dark brown stitched ribbon to look like a road, adhering it under the bike.


The cream card stock was sponged with Desert Sand ink, and the brown with Cocoa ink - both inks are Memento by Tsukineko.


I kept the inside simple, but used the same card stock and sponging inks.

  6. Love the tours but they are always at 2am in the morning for us so I just watch the highlights during the day. Love clean and simple cards, they are very refreshing
