I Brake For Freddie on Harley

Hi everybody!

This is my first post as a design team member for I Brake For Stamps.  I am very excited to be on this team.  There are over 4,000 stamps from which to choose! Most are red rubber stamps and some are digis.  Here is a link to the online store, I Brake For Stamps.

I used an image called Freddie on Harley, a super cute frog.  There are other Freddie the Frog images as well.  The link to Freddie on Harley in digital format is HERE.  The link to Freddie on Harley in rubber stamp is HERE.

This card is for someone who had a brain aneurysm and is waking up. He and his wife are into motorcycles so hopefully he will wake up and respond to this card in a positive way.

I colored the image with copic markers and I'll list the colors below. I used Gina K Designs white layering and heavy base weight card stock and red velvet card stock.   I sponged clouds using jumbo sponge dauber.  I used the Spellbinders Classic Scallop Ovals Large dies and Memento Summer Sky ink.  If you would like to see a tutorial on how to do this, just let me know.  It's really easy and looks so realistic.  I cut the road out of black matte vinyl and mustard yellow glossy vinyl.  I sponged the grass part with Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  I used a Lawn Fawn Hello die for the greeting and cut it out with Silhouette Double Sided Adhesive on the back so that it would be easy to adhere.  I used a Sakura Metallic Silver Gelly Roll Pen for the tail pipe and other metal, silver parts of the bike.  I used a chevron embossing folder by Darice.  Glossy Accents was used on the headlight, mirror and red parts of the bike to create some dimension and shine.  Last but not least, some googly eyes were added.





For the inside I used a Lawn Fawn die called Thinking About You Border die.  The words are all together in a line and I put the double sided adhesive sheet behind it and cut it and then cut the words apart so I could get it all on the card.  



Copics used to color Freddie:
Frog:  YG03, YG17, YG67, YG01 (for spots)
Wheels:  C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
Red part of bike:  R24, R27, R29
