Old Friends Are Best

Hi I'm Beverly Cole aka Artsystamper...Hello and welcome to my studio! The first Monday of November brings another Artsystamper Challenge . The theme this time is

As always, the winner will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop. My selections offer stamps and sentiments, as well as pre-colored images and papers for easy, last minute cards. Why not take a moment and check out what I have in store for you?
Here is my inspiration piece for the challenge. I used two of my digital sets to create this card... Cruisin' Digital Stamp Set

I printed all the elements of my card out on white cardstock. It's easy to size the papers to your card before printing, so you don't have any leftover paper. I ran the diamond paper through my machine with an embossing folder, then sanded away some of the dots. I then used Black Soot Distress Ink to darken the paper a bit, so the car would stand out.
The gears are from a Bigz die by Tim Holtz. I used Ranger Alcohol ink to color the aluminum (from a soda can). A piece of gingham seam binding is attached over the bottom edge of the top layer, to ground the car. The sentiment is also from the set.
Some clear embossing powder creates a shine on the car, and some Black Nuvo Drops shine up the tires.
I hope you will hop on over to Artsystamper Digitals Challenge Blog and enter! You will also see more inspiring designs from the Artsystamper Addicts Design much talent!
