Hii all! It’s me Lisanne with a new blogpost. So today I want to share this fire bus card. Sometimes you get an idea and it works out well, that’s what I had with this card.
So I started with the background. I die-cut the biggest Stitched Intended Square (1698) and coloured this with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass. First I blend it and after that I dipped the card into the wet ink on my sheet. Now I can make different layers. The last layer is made with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass. I love all the different layers just with one colour.
Here you can see a close-up picture.
I did the same for the grass. I used the Slimeline Adventure Edges (1925) and coloured this with Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn. Love those splatters.
For the next step I started with the Retro Bus Kit. I want to make it as a firebus. The base is coloured with Distress Ink Barn Door. Also for the bus I used Black Soot, Prize Ribbon, Fossilized Amber and Hickory Smoke. I made the stripes with the pieces from the suitcase.
I adhere the stripes before I added all the other layers so you covered the edges.
The light at the top of the bus is from the Fire Accessoires. For this card I used more pieces, like the ladder, pawn and the helmet.
I also made the Elephant, he can bring more water to the fire.
Than it is time to adhere everything together. Then I saw a spot where someting is missing. I missed the splatters water, this looks realy fun I think. The Elephant needs his wiper to clean the window.
At least I stamped the sentiment ‘You set my heart on fire’ at the stitched banner. And coloured the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
And here is the last close-up picture. I’ll hope you like this card as much as I do. I had a lot of fun making this.
Thank you for reading!
Kind regards Lisanne
