Colour Inkspiration #52 meets Freshly Made Sketches #381

Welcome to my blog post for the Colour Inkspiration Challenge #52 and Freshly Made Sketches #381:

My daughter asked me to make her a card for a co-worker about to retire. He rides motorcycle so I knew I had the perfect stamp set "One Wild Ride". One of my favorite things about card making is that I can personalize the card to the person and the occasion. Although the colors reminded me a bit of St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to challenge myself to use those colors. The sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #381 was such a clean and simple design it was perfect turned on the side!
I stamped the motorcycle with Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White card stock then I created a mask for it with Inkadinkado masking paper. To create the mask stamp the image onto the white side of this particular paper and fussy cut the image. Once the image is covered with the mask you can stamp over it and the first image will always appear in front. I wanted both the tire treads and the balloons to appear behind the motorcycle.
I used both greens in the ground and the balloons. The tire tread, the sentiment and the splattered are all done in Early Espresso. There is a small sliver of Silver Foil card stock showing around the central image.

The inside has a couple of great sentiments: the large one is from the "En Route" stamp set and the small one is from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" stamp set.

Fun card to make and I hope it hits the mark for this special retirement. If you would like to recreate this card and purchase any products from my Stampin' Up! store (open all day/every day!) just click on any image below and thanks for sticking to the end!
