Enjoy the ride...


I'm up on the Bellarific blog today with some new Scenic Saturday inspiration. You may remember that my last card featured the Sketchy Corner Backdrop and how I mentioned then that I can't stop thinking of all the different character stamps that will look amazing with it. Well, I thought about creating something totally different this week but in the end I decided to the keep this theme going because this background stamp, and all the different ways you can use it, is still very much inspiring me. So this time around I've stamped Uptown Girl Vienna on her Vespa. I mean, come on... she is literally waiting for a street to stop traffic on with that thing. Vienna is a large stamp, filling quite a lot of space on this standard A2 sized card front. To change up the look of this card I decided to use a 4x6 clear mounting stamp to 'mirror flip' the Sketchy Corner and have it fall on the upper right hand side of the card rather than the left. This simple flip gave Vienna all the room she needed to park her Vespa. In the distant background I used some of the same Copic colors that I used on the Sketchy Corner to draw in a simple building shape, matching the stamped background and making it look like there is a cross street back there. Because I've used this background several times by now, I also didn't feel bad about covering some of it up when I decided to stamp the sentiment onto a die cut speech bubble. I think it is a playful touch that kinda makes this card look like a panel out of a comic book. :)

Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing yet another take on this cool background stamp. Stay crafty my friends!
