This week the challenge at Perfect Sentiments is to make a card with a sentiment for Father's Day. The twist is to use this color story as inspiration for your card.
My husband loves car shows and vintage cars, so this card is definitely for him. I used this sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge #211 for the design of this card.
I embossed both the red background and the grey strip using Clockworks. It reminded me of the gears in a car. I carefully lined up the gray strip across the middle of the embossing folder so that I could match it to the embossed design on the red background. The main image was stamped three times with different colors of ink and pieced back together so that each part showed up more. There was a title on top that said, "Enjoy your special day," but I covered it with the Father's Day sentiment that came with the stamp set. I retraced the words with a darker marker so they would stand out and pop dotted it on the black background. The three pewter brads on the bottom are all different and show up better in this photo:
