I started this one with the ombre effect using the Butterscotch and some Sandal Alcohol Ink. It needed the stamping over and the choice of the Papillon background set in combination with the yellow tones my mind racing in one direction. The foil tape elements cried out for die cutting and embossing before the Butterscotch was combined with Latte Alcohol Ink blended over the top. Yellow, Paris... it had to be a celebration of this year's Tour de France, and I found just the right embellishment in Tim's French Industrial Paper Stash collection. My cyclist was distressed (spritz and flick) and watercoloured with a detailer nib brush and some Distress Markers.
Now for some layering; the matching Papillon Texture Fade embossing folder was used on some mustard kraft core card before being rubbed over with darker shades of Distress Ink. For anyone who followed the race this year you'll know the winner, Chris Froome achieved the double success of overall race winner and winner of the King of the Mountains jersey (traditionally a white and red polka dot pattern). Thankfully Tim's Correspondence Paper Stash collection came to the rescue this time, providing the perfect layer to represent this. Finally some glazed die cut lettering, a couple of cog wheels, Remnant Rubs, Small Talk stickers, stamping and coordinating twine completed the look. And on the reverse I added a handwritten description of Chris's amazing feats.
For now 'All aboard'! Terminal 3 awaits...
