Silver Automobile Card by Alison Hall

Hello Stampers! I've been playing with Debbie Cotton's fabulous new stamps and metal foil, and I have a shiny card to share with you today.


Here's what I used...

Debbie Cotton Stamp - Linington's Automotive Sales
Bubble Wrap
Black Card
6x6ins white card
Tools for metal

Here's how I made my card...

1. I created a Gelli print background, using blue paints & bubble wrap, then cut a piece 5.5x5.5ins square. I used jet black Stazon ink to stamp the Europe Map background in the four corners. I didn't use a stamp block, as I wasn't worried about getting the whole print.
2. I inked the edges of my background, using blending foam & walnut stain distress ink, then matted onto black card, & attached it to a 6x6ins card blank.


3. I stuck a sheet of sticky back aluminium sheet to black card, then used jet black stazon to stamp the words & car from the Linington's Automotive Sales stamp set. I cut around the words & car, then used metal tools to outline & add detail.
4. I finished my card by gluing the metal car & words to the background, using glossy accents.

I hope that my card has inspired you.
