Bicycles seem to be cropping up everywhere now. I have seem lots of bicycle stamps from various companies. And so, they began to grow on me.
Two of the cards I made is for Valentine's Day. But change the saying and they make great masculine cards! And we always need help with those!
The tandem bike with the heart balloons was stamped on vellum and the clouds were stamped on the white cardstock underneath. I was trying to get the look of the bike floating in the air. I also added a crystal to each of the wheels, just for some extra sparkle.
I had to add butterflies to the other card......I just love that Hero Arts butterfly set. It goes with so many things. When I'm looking to add that something to a card, it seems I've been going to those butterflies a lot more often now. I think I'm wishing and so looking forward to spring.
The tricycle reminds me of the one I had, though mine had quite large maroon fender over the front wheel. Those were the days! I used some distress ink to make it look a bit old and added some really fine red thread to the handles. Boy, did it bring back memories.
Hope you'll start thinking of some ways to use these bicycle stamps. It really is soooo much fun!
