And it just so happened that my Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine (Issue 183, June 2018) arrived this weekend with a cover stamp/embossing folder set that included...a bicycle!
This set consisted of several stamps including bicycle parts to layer and various items to accessorize I decided to get out my MISTI and play and came up with a one-layer card that fits a transportation vehicle version of the challenge.
I started by stamping the bicycle frame in red and then added necessities (like gears, wheels, handlebars, pedals seat and more) in black and silver. I attached a brown basket to the handlebars and filled this basket with a bouquet of flowers. A balloon attached to the rear fender completed my method of transportation. A little scribble to ground my bicycle and a sentiment completed my card:
