Father's Day Card with Bicycle


It's been a crazy humid day here in Oklahoma, which made for a good excuse to stay indoors My niece is visiting for a couple of days and she requested to use my supplies to make her dad a Father's Day Card. He likes to ride bicycles and rides in competitions, so it only made sense to make a card using a bike. However, this required a trip to the craft store because the only bike stamps in my stash are girly. We didn't have much luck at the store in the stamp department and luckily found some 3-D stickers that worked perfectly. She used watercolor paper and watercolored the background to look like a sky and road. The road was stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set by Stampin' Up! and Staz On black ink. Two small die cut clouds were cut using an Impression Obsession die. The Father's Day sentiment is by Hero Arts and the stickers were added. It turned out great!

 My niece Hailey, who is twelve, would like to enter her card into the following challenges:
