Bombshell Stamps March Hump Day Hop: Stencil it In!

Hello Bloggy friends! Since it's the last Wednesday of the month, it's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, the theme that I chose was "Stencil it In." I challenged the participants to either use a pre-made stencil, or to create some of their own! Here's my card.

I used 2 images from King of the Road, and the flag from Speed Shop. I was really excited to make this card. Check out that fabby Houndstooth stencil I used! It's from Dreamweaver Stencils. And I have some fun news about them....I am going to be a Guest Designer with them next month!

I colored my hot rod with Metallic F/X (also from Dreamweavers) and watercolor markers. You can't tell here, but the car has an awesome glimmer because of the Metallic F/X.

You can see it much better here. It's also tough to tell, but pretty much everything is pink. They are soft shades of pink, and I think it looks cool.

Here you can really see the dimension of all of my elements. I used a bunch of pop dots, Embossing Paste, and corrugated cardboard. This was a really fun card to make. Below is the full hop list. Please be sure to leave some love for everyone. And perhaps you can join us next month! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
