One Layer CAS Timeless Classic Thank You
I am still working on organizing my stamping area but decided to take a break to create a One Layer CAS (Clean and Simple) card using the Timeless Classic stamp set along with the large splatter image from the retired Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I had originally purchased the Timeless Classic stamp set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps several years ago (it is retired now from SNSS but is still available from Impression Obsession™ t/a I/O Stamps) and have only inked it up once before today :-)
I thought the vintage truck image would be perfect for the Less Is More #341 “One Layer Vehicles” Challenge as well as The Paper Players #357 Sandy's Color Challenge, the Addicted to CAS #117 “One Layer”Challenge and the Watercooler Wednesday #132 “Masculine Anything Goes”Challenge.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- fabulous examples from their Design Teams as well as in their galleries!
To create this card:
1). Score a 4 ¼” x 11” piece of Stampin’ Up! Naturals White (retired) cardstock in half and stamp the Timeless Classic truck image onto the front of the card using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink. Heat set the ink with a heat tool and color using an AquaPainter™ with ink from the Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral Classic Ink Pads. Use a Spectrum Noir™ CB8 Alcohol Marker to add additional color to the truck and the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker for shadows.
2). Mask the entire truck image and stamp the large splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge with Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink (I did use the AquaPainter™ to blend the ink a bit).
3). Remove the mask and use a Faber-Castell™ Silver Pitt Pen Marker to color the gears, border frame, wheel covers and fender. Add shimmer to the truck panels with a Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen and white highlights to the wheels with an Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen.
4). Finish off the card by stamping the sentiment from Timeless Classic with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink and adding a few drops to the center of the gears using Nuvo™ Gloss Black Crystal Drops.
