Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge # 90

This week's Sketch Challenge at Waltzingmouse:



And a really cool card by atsamom at Splitcoaststampers:



Isn't that a great card for a teen boy?

When I play along with the Waltzingmouse challenge, I'm somewhat limited by my very few Waltzingmouse stamps. A problem easily remedied earlier this week, when I placed an order! But while I wait for my new goodies to arrive, I really only have Free Spirit and some backgrounds to play with.

I combined the two inspirations to come up with this:


Love those stripes on the black. This could be a great card for someone who just passed their driving test, or just as useful for a teen boy's birthday. Or for somebody who's Jamaican. (aren't these the colours of the Jamaican flag?) LOL!

Now I'm off to my daughter's school where I play piano for the choir - we're going to the festival today to perform our two songs that we've worked on for so long - wish us luck!

Supplies:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Free Spirit (car and sentiment), probably Papertrey (solid circle)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Summer Sun, Lucky Limeade
Ink: Versafine Onyx, Real Red, Summer Sun, Lucky Limeade

Yes, YES!...in a word...COOL. I just love the bold stripes you made with the cardstock against the black! It's perfectly stamped, and looks just like a card you could pick up at a store! Wonderful job, Ardyth!
