Bombshell's Hump Day Hop!

Alison, Bombshell's Challenge Captain, has selected this month's theme, which is called "Washi Away!" Here's what she had to say about this theme.
I want you to use washi tape on your project. Use a little, use a lot....whatever you like. Washi tape comes in so many different colors and patterns, so I expect it to be a really fun hop!
You've reached the last stop on the hop! You should have arrived here from the talented and lovely Kelli's blog! During a recent AC Moore prowl, I found some Washi Tapes that went exceedingly well with Bombshell's Hot Rod Classic collection, which is now available as rubber AND digital stamps! Woo-hoo! Now these fabulous stamps can be manipulated digitally, which is just what I've done with this card!

I had some fun manipulating the Classic Coupe Hot Rod from the King of the Road digital set. It was flipped, resized, and the shadows were erased using PhotoElements software. It was printed out onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. The chrome bits were colored using a silver Prismacolor pencil which was blended out with a Prismacolor Colorless Blender. My design called for a mask, so the same image was printed out onto used generic printer paper using an inkjet paper. This image was fussy-cut and adhered to its counterpart using repositionable adhesive. The "roadway" was sponged using Watering Can Archival ink. The cloudy sky was created by sponging Stormy Sky Distress ink over an old FairyTale Creations cloud stencil.

Checkerboard and flame Washi tape was adhered to a piece of cardstock to use for my background. The stamped, sponged piece, was adhered to the Washi taped cardstock, and foil photo corner stickers were added. I haven't decided who will receive this card for what occasion, so I did not use a sentiment at this time.

Thanks for visiting today!
