Here's my card:
When I first saw this adorable VW Bug stamp set, I really tried to convince myself I did NOT need it. But then I found some adorable digi papers from Tracy Ann Digital Art Etsy shop and I immediately thought of a FLOWER POWER Bug! I've always wanted a lime green VW Bug, and if I didn't have kids to chauffeur around, I'd probably have one! Well, this is as good a substitute as I'm gonna get, lol!
Here's a closer look:
I stamped the Bug onto some groovy flowered paper I printed out from the collection and cut it out. I applied some Liquid Glass to the windshield area instead of trying to color it to make it look like glass. I did add some shadowing with Grey Copics to give it some dimension though.
I didn't have the right color PTI felt to match this card, and I really wanted a Lime green felt flower to embellish it so I dyed some of the Cream felt with shhh... food coloring. Yes, I've done this many times with wool felt, and I LOVE the way the colors come out! Also, when you boil wool felt (this is how I dye felt, on the stove in a pot of simmering food colored water), and then throw it in the dryer for a little while, it felts. I prefer the look of felted wool felt, it gets a gorgeous soft texture to it that is really beautiful. So, I made a little flower with it and topped it off with a button.
Hope you like it as much as I do, and have fun blog hopping! Thanks for visiting!
