CDS Sneak Peek - At the Races

Welcome back for day 2 of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks! This cute set is called At the Races and is my other new illustrated set for September. My son has a HUGE love of race cars...well pretty much anything that has wheels and makes noise, so I figured that there were other race car fans out there somewhere too :)

This card was a combined challenge card for the CDS DT and it follows the sketch and colour challenges (orange and blue) that we were given. The race car was watercoloured with tombow markers, paper toled and then placed on top of my sponged background with dimensionals.

I got a little busy adding different threads for stitching and I'm pretty sure that just changing the bobbins and thread colours alone to me longer to do than make the actual card! lol Most of the Basic Grey Ambrosia DP's were cuttlebugged and some of the layers were popped up with more dimensionals.

Thanks for popping by to see my new set, but don't forget to visit the rest of the blogs below to see all of the fabulous new stamps that are being shown today. All the sets that are being previewed will be available on September 1st. Happy hopping :)

Such a cute card, Kim!! You sure have been busy!! I actually just have clear thread on my bobbin....since it's on the back nobody sees it & that way I don't have to keep changing it!! Saves a bit of time :)
