HLS Car Show

Hi my friends and welcome to the Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge Nov. 2023. A month long challenge where "Anything Goes" as long as a stencil is included!
This was the birthday card I made for my husband who is an avid car fan. When I saw these 3 sets from Honey Bee Stamps I knew they'd be perfect for him:
1) Honey Bee Stamps - You're a Classic - the sentiment and emblem;
2) Honey Bee Stamps - Car Show - the $100,000 '63 Corvette Split Window Coupe (or so I am told!);
3) Honey Bee Stamps - Flames Stencil & Mask (Set of 2);
4) Honey Bee Stamps - Car show dies (I didn't use them but nice to have).
I used 3 colors of yellow inks by Simon Says Stamp and one is a bit more orange for the flames. I have trouble finding good yellows and I do like these 3 in particular for ink blending. After that, I simply stamped the car, sentiment and emblem on the front with Altenew's Obsidian Black Pigment Ink, my all time favorite ink. I use it for everything, but be aware you have to let it dry a bit or it will smudge. But it's worth it for the nice crisp black stamp color.
The inside has a personal note, so I won't show it here, but if you have a car lover in your life, these are good sets to have! Thank you for joining me today and break out your stencils and join us!!!
