one for the gents ...

stamps:  'for the gents' hunky-dory stamps and 'abc- 123 sketch alphabet and numbers' and 'for the family' by stampin up!
inks: tim holtz distress ink pad and archival ink pad (jet black)
card: 6x4 card blank, craftwork card digi cardstock and kraft card
other: inkssentials glossy accents, simply gorjuss bakers twine and stampin up! punch extra large petite pennants

I saw this sketch and thought it would be perfect for a car themed card with the bunting. I used the car stamp to create a background on kraft card. I then distress inked the card blank and some other white card to turn it blue. this was used to punch out the pieces for the bunting and cut out the banner. I cut a further piece of kraft to layer onto the blue banner. these were stamped with the sentiments and added to the card. I used a piece of twine to join the bunting and finish the design, using some glossy accents. I think the sketchy style of the lettering and cars work well with the simple design and limited colour palette for this card.
