Outlawz is having a party. I made this card for the "Where in the World" challenge that's sponsored by the Copic/Promarker Friday Group. Since I was itching to use gingham for the curtains, it qualifies for Moxie Fab World's Gingham challenge as well.
Whereas I am a native New Yorker and have lived many different places, I've called New Jersey my home for more than two decades. Both New York and New Jersey are known for their classic diners, so Outlawz' challenge was the perfect excuse to use this wonderful Diner (SKU:83-18) stamp by Rubbernecker.
The diner was stamped and colored with Copic markers. Spica Glitter pen was used to highlight the image. I used my craft knife to cut out the windows.
I then stamped image onto white cardstock and then stamped just the window area onto red gingham cardstock. I colored the white cardstock windows with B000 Copic marker and clear Spica Glitter pen to make 'em sparkly. I fussy cut the gingham curtains and adhered 'em to the colored windows. I adhered a strip of ink jet transparency over the curtained windows, then adhered the diner over that piece. The entire diner was masked and a cloudy sky and a grassy lawn were airbrushed with the Copic Airbrush system.
My husband gave me a New Jersey map for the cause. I love using old maps for my crafting, so I swipe 'em whenever I can. (big grin).
The funky 50's-ish sign is a chipboard piece from the now defunct Deluxe Cuts company. I painted it with Picket Fence paint dabber, used Doodlebug rub-ons for "from" and used QuicKutz Khaki dies for the the lettering. A ring was used to circle my town and mini Khaki and Khaki shadow dies were used to cut the gingham paper.
The gingham cardstock may or may not be from AMuse. I got it from my now defunct LSS, which I miss.
Thanks for visiting today!
