Shabby Vespa Card

I have always loved this older paper pad , Neopolitan, from American Crafts. I go back to it every so often and fall in love again every time.

I’m afraid this picture doesn’t do this card justice. All the colours are muted and when I tried bumping up the saturation, it just looked weird. This was made for Tuesday Morning Sketches 279. I used the vertical center line of the Bingo card, ribbon, embossing and flowers. It was sure tricky making something with the Bingo card AND the sketch!

The Vespa is a sticker; to prevent it from sticking to the card base in between the foam dots, I used my powder tool to deactivate the adhesive. I usually, if I remember, add the foam dots BEFORE deactivating the adhesive or the powder can prevent the foam dots from sticking.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
