Yellow & Orange Challenge!

Happy May Day Everyone! 

Today I wanted to share the new challenge on the Lost Coast Designs & Carmen's Veranda - Yellow and Orange!  Yes, you must use yellow and orange somewhere on your creation and do I have a card for you....

a Weinermobile!!!!

I absolutely love this image...it brought back so many memories. My family and I actually got to see a real Weinermobile when we visited The Henry Ford Museum when the boys were young.  I even got a Weinee Whistle (and I still have it).  

So on to the card... I started off by trimming a cover from a vintage atlas down to size. It was spitzed with water and then sprinkled with yellow Nuance pigment powder. After it had dried I rubbed a bit of orange and yellow VFC ink through a circle stencil.  I then smeared a bit of Radiant Neon Amplify! through a second stencil as well. I removed the stencil and heated the Amplify! to puff it up. This panel was affixed to a white card base and I added a few hand drawn lines around the outer edge.

I stamped the Weinermobile twice on white cardstock.  The first was sprinkled with orange Nuance and the second I watercolored the car with yellow Nuance.  Once they were both dry I trimmed the  orange weiner and added it to the yellow car body.  It was then affixed to the card using double stick foam tape.

I die-cut the sentiment and added a few sequins to finish it off.

Now it's your turn!!

  2. Fabulous card dear. I love the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile! I have my whistle I got when I was a little girl. A few years ago I stopped in Palm Springs to see it parked at a Viintage Motel. I tried to get it to come to our car show but we weren’t a big enough draw. Great Memories...<3
