Color Challenge at Sunday Stamps (VW Bus Manly Card) + SUMMER COFFEE LOVER BLOGHOP #3

Hallo my blogland friends....we meet again on Sunday at our brand new challenge at Sunday Stamps  this time we have color challenge:

I really love this color combo and as I dont have much flower stamps and also I need a manly birthday card also I choose this old VW Bus stamp from The Alley Way Stamp named Feeling Groovy

First I masked the white area, sponged with Distress Ink Tea Dye at the bottom part, using my Cloud Stencil from Billie A. and sponging the Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the top area. For the VW Bus I choose the color dark brown, light brown and light blue plus white. Also I hope I used all the color combo here :) I want to make it one layer card but I decided to stamp the VW bus on a separate paper and fussy cut it and adhere on the sponged background paper.

To give intereset I drew some dots at the ground with dark brown copic marker. The sentiment also I stamped with brown ink.

Challenges for my card are:

Sister Act Challenge #109: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

  1. Eine Karte und sooooo viele Challenges!!!
    Wie du das immer schaffst!!!
    Ich kriege das nur mit 3, selten mit 4 Challenges hin!!!
    Deine Bus-Karte gefällt mir gut.
    Leider sind die Farben von "CAS on Sunday" sehr maskulin,
    sodass die Karte etwas "farblos" wirkt.
    Aber auch das hat seinen Reiz!!!
    Liebe Grüße,
