Joyride with Becky.....


Hi there and Happy Friday!!  I have a card to show you today with some brand new stamps that I recently purchased from The Cat's Pajamas.  I have long been admiring these adorable images and after a recent conversation with my good friend, Becky, so had she!!  So we both purchased this set called Joyride and decided to make something with it and post it together on the same day!  A challenge of sorts!  So make sure you check out what Becky has done with this set, too!  I can't wait to see!!


Okay, so onto a few details.....I used this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge #116 for my card.  The challenge was to use colored pencils with mineral spirits.  I pulled out my once loved and now neglected (thanks to my Copic markers) Prismacolor Pencils and had to search for my gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) and my stumps.  Luckily they weren't that hard to find and after dusting them off (hehe) I got to work coloring this darling image!  I forgot how much fun this coloring technique is!!  I created a little round scene with a road, mountains and sky!  The dp is My Mind's Eye Be Loved.  I love the pop of pink on the scooter.  If I was a really girly girl, which I'm not, I think I would love a pink scooter!!

Well, thank you for stopping by!  I've got a couple errands to run and then hopefully some more stamping time later today!!  Have a good one!

I agree-Very cute card! I love the mountains in the background and the road with the squiggly lines. I'm not sure I would call myself a major girly girl, but I could go for a pink scooter!
