SSD03 - Getting Lucky!

It's time for another Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday and I got to play with a brand new release! The set that I got to play with is called Gettin' Old and it's being released today! It's full of sassy sentiments to make both you (the card maker) and the person you are giving it to laugh :)

Here is this week's sketch and you can tell that I cheated a little on my own sketch *gasp* I turned the sketch on it's side and moved the triangle piece to the opposite side to accommodate my car....an may have added another piece of card stock for good measure.... :) More is more I always say! lol

I coloured water coloured my car to match my orange and yellow scenic route DP scrap and added some silver gel pen to create the chrome look. I then paper toled the car, cut out the windows and added some acetate to look like glass - too bad that you can't tell that extra detail in the photo (you might be able to if you click on the picture too enlarge it).

While cruising around SCS the other day, I stumbled across a really cute card with these amazing trees on it by PJStamps. Hers was made out of punches but because I don't own any of the ones she does, I decided to cut the shapes out free hand and shape my version of the tree...and methinks that I will be making way more of these cuties in the future! Thanks Patti Jo!

I place my tree upon my sponged ink background and assembled my creation with the addition of the first part of the sentiment. And on the inside the card reads:

*Snort!* I love it!!! Don't forget to pop by the Skipping Stones Design store to see what's in the rest of this fun set :)
