For the Love of Bikes


Today i have a card for another new to me challenge, CAS-ology, i've seen a few people participate and its been on my to do list! The challenge this week is Neon.

So first, i have a love/hate relationship with this card. Its a little bit out of my comfort zone, but on the other hand i kind of like it in a weird way!

First i stamped the bike image on a piece of canvas with adhesive on the back. I really like how the ink bleeds into the fabric. Next i stamped the sentiment with neon green and i really like how yellow ink bleeds into the canvas and separates from the green.

Then to make it a little less 'perfect,' when i placed it on my cardbase and purposely folded under a corner and made some creases. Then i added a few metal dots.

Then i thought it still need a little something, so i 'doodled' (and i'm no doodler!) on the canvas with a black pen and surprisingly liked it and on the other hand it's, at least to me, kind of weird looking.

Let me know what you think! Love it or hate it?? and be truthful, trust me i can take it!! LOL!! :)
