Dynamic Duos #55 and Freshly Made Sketches #88

I'm back home from visiting my daughter in Atlanta.  Since I live in Washington (the state), it takes me a few days to get my body back in sync from the time change. I haven't stamped in a few days and wanted to get back to it so I spent some time in my craft room yesterday evening.

This card is for the Freshly Made Sketches and Dynamic Duos Challenges.

I stamped the bicycle and was so proud of myself because the 2 parts lined up perfectly. Next came the basket. Not too bad.  Finally the presents. OK, here is where things broke down. I used markers so that I could get 2 colors.  Not great looking but I could live with it. Next was the bows.  Really didn't think much of the bows after I stamped them so I added some Dazzling Details to give them sparkle. Ah, looked pretty good.  I went on to stamp the sentiment, I punched the border, added the Raspberry strip at the bottom and now it's time to pop up the bicycle panel on dimensionals.

Surely by now the bows are dry. Right?  Not even close. I smooshed them big time! Now what to do?  I'm almost done and I've wrecked the bows!  So I sort of scraped around them, added a bit more Dazzling Details and let it sit overnight.  My husband says no one will know. Shh! Don't tell. 

The bows do sparkle prettily and I guess they don't look so bad in real life :-)

The Challenges:

Stamps: Pedal Pusher, Sketched Shapes (PTI)
Paper: White, Wisteria Wonder, Raspberry Ripple In Color DSP Stack (SU)
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake (SU)
Accessories/Tools: Pedal Pusher die (PTI), Silver Dazzling Details, Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch, dimensionals (SU)

Your bows look great and I just love the bicycle image. Received my Stampin' Up! order today from the new catalog and I ordered 2 stamps sets that have bicycle's in them! Thanks so much for playing Dynamic Duos this week!

That bicycle is perfection! You've done a wonderful job lining up all the parts, and the colours are darling (I'd love a bike that colour!) Thanks for sharing with us at Dynamic Duos this week :)
