Stuck?! July 1st Sketch

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Hey, y'all!  I've got my take on Stuck?! Sketches' brand spankin' new sketch, to share with you all, today.  I've taken a few liberties with this one and swapped all the triangles you'll see below out for road signs.  I've also rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left and moved the title line closer to center.  I think you'll still see a resemblance to the original sketch, though.  So, let's just get started.
I started this page by rubbing Pumice Stone and Lemonade Stand Distress Inks, through number stencil and star templates, onto the highway, patterned, paper, base page.  I then stamped over it, in Brocade Blue ink, with the Vintage Notepad background, before layering lots of Cameo-cut, from Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Brilliant Blue, Garden Green, & Daffodil Delight cardstocks respectively, highway signs over that.  My photos were then matted with Whisper White cardstock and layered, once again, over everything.  The first was flanked with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a vellum, banner die cut, "ENJOY THE RIDE" phrase and a "BEST TRIP EVER" arrow....
and topped with a "road trip" tag, which reads, I just love that you both travel so well, especially on the way home, when you're all tuckered out.  What a memorable weekend!, and was dressed up with a bit of geo tag flair.
The second was wrapped, three times, with a length of white string, tied in a bow...
and grounded with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, car, which was colored with pencils, hand cut out, and embellished with a couple of stitched, black, button tires, as well as Crystal Effects, for shine, on the windows.
A skinny strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock was then adhered right down the center of the page and topped with a couple of hand-cut, from patterned papers, arrows, which were printed with our going to and coming home destinations.
A "happy travels" title, Cameo-cut from Whisper White cardstock...
and stamped, in Jet Black ink, "lovely day SEP 09 2013" date complete the look.
Here's your July 1st Sketch to get you off and running in the right direction.
