|The finished sentiment inside the card.|
I just discovered a new challenge blog called The Order of the Opus-Gluei. It's a challenge blog where there are new challenges every two weeks and they are open to interpretation. The best news is that they accept all art forms! I love these kinds of challenges. The current challenge at The Order of the Opus-Gluei is to create something with bikes or trikes. I used a stamped bike image to create a bicycle border on the top and bottom of a cardbase. I simply fussy cut around it once the stamped images had dried. This created a unique border and draws attention to the bicycles. Next I wrapped a piece of patterned paper with blue embroidery thread. Then I printed the sentiment onto a tag with my computer and inked around the outer edges of the tag before adhering it to the front on the card. Inside the card, I added "Enjoy the Ride".
