Bombshell's Hump Day Hop!

 Alison, Bombshell's Challenge Captain, set this month's Hump Day Hop theme, which is Speed Demons: Masters of Transportation!
Greetings! If you want to sign up for the September Bombshell Hump Day Hop, you have come to the right place! This month, the theme is "Speed Demons: Masters of Transportation." Bombshell has lots of cool vehicles. Motorcycles, cars, even a beautiful ship! Make any of these items the focus of your project this month.
I'm the last stop at the hop! You should have arrived here from  Kelli's blog, where I'm sure she wowed you with something fabulous!

I'm an avid Sons of Anarchy fan, so I decided to use a motorcycle for the challenge. Fortunately Bombshell has several great motorcycle sets in the Hot Rod Collection. I opted to use the Let's Ride set, which has three different motorcycle silhouettes.

Here's my card!

I stamped the silhouette onto patterned paper from the Idea-ology Destinations Paper Stash pad using Onyx Black VersaFine ink. I love using this ink when I want a deep black with great coverage. This piece was die-cut using a Nestabilities Labels 18 die. The patterned paper was kept in the die and Black Soot Distress ink was sponged over it.

SCACD's Contempo Compass Statement Corner die to die-cut black/kraft Core'dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgia cardstock (It's on sale!!!). The cardstock was removed from the die and lightly sanded. The corner was adhered onto the lower right hand corner of a piece of patterned paper from the Destinations Paper Stash pad, which had been edged with Black Soot Distress ink. The stamped diecut piece was adhered so that the it overlapped a portion of the die and two points of the star overlapped it.

A QuicKutz tag die was used to die-cut the black/kraft cardstock. The inner piece was reversed and Idea-ology Remnants Rubs were added to the kraft piece, while the black frame was lightly sanded.

A hole was poked into the top of the tag, three more holes were poked along the top of the card front, and two holes were poked into the patterned paper that was covered with the Contempo Compass Statement Corner die (I probably just lost you!). 1/16" eyelets were added along the top, to the tag, and to two of the holes in the die. Now I only have approximately 359,613 1/16" pewter eyelets left. The tragedy. By the way, I forgot how much fun it is to hammer eyelets.

Thin hemp cord was threaded through the eyelets along the top of the card and to the sentiment tag and that finished the card. Whooooo-eeeeee!

Thanks for visiting today!

Here's the hop list in case you got lost!
