Retro Road Trip!

Hi Everyone! I thought I would share a card I made today using the Route 66 plate from Artistic Outpost. Up until this point, I have only used the motorcycle and small stamps from this set. It was about time that I inked up this car stamp!
I stamped the image on tan cardstock and then colored the car with Twinkling H2Os. I then took a white gel pen to color the roof (has to be a convertible, right?) and add some lines here and then. I went a little crazy with the pen and I don't know if I like the car now, but I wanted it to POP away from the rest of the image. Then I used my Ranger ink applicator to add the same brown ink to the edges of all of the papers and to deepen the background around the car. I stamped the words (also on the plate) and then added some fun retro papers, ribbon and brads. I think it looks like a good time! lol

Have a creatively wonderful evening!
