Craft Roulette Challenge - First Submission!

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! Today's card was created for the Craft Roulette YouTube channel. In case you don't know what Craft Roulette is, it's a great channel on YouTube that features someone who makes cards, or perhaps own a business that makes things that can be used in card making and they make a card based on what the wheel says! Check it out on Friday evenings for more details. 

This past Friday's challenge was to make a card using the following four themes. 

1. Circle

2. Wizard of Oz

3. On the Road

4. Add Wings

As soon as I seen "On the Road" I immediately thought of this great stamp set I got from My Favorite Things ages ago called "Fast Track Friends". So with that, I created this card for the Craft Roulette Challenge. 

 For this card, I started with a A2 sized card using smooth black heavy weight cardstock. Then I die cut a rectangle from smooth white cardstock. I added a piece of removable tape to create a horizon line. Then with the MFT - Ray of Light stencil and Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Ink in Lemonade, I created the sunny background. 

I removed the tape and moved it up so I could work on the grass area. I covered the entire area with Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn, then I used MFT - Grassy Edges Stencil to create areas of grass throughout the background. 

Once I had the background done and dried, I die cut the road that I believe was an add-on to the Fast Track Friends stamp set, from smooth black cardstock and white cardstock. Then I trimmed the road to fit to the horizon line to the bottom of the card. Once I had the road where I wanted it and glued down, I added the white lines in the middle of the road. 

From there, I stamped the sentiment "Racing to Wish You a Happy Birthday" from the stamp set using Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink. 

I stamped all my images using the same ink and colored them in with Copic markers. I die cut them all except the red race card. I added wings to the back of the racecar, which came from MFT - Magical Unicorns stamp set. I used masking paper to do this. Then I fussy cut the car out. 

I added all my images to the front of the card using Lineco Neutral pH glue. I then added little red circles of Stickles in Christmas Red. This was an idea from my daughter to look like a field of poppies just like in the Wizard of Oz. I also tried to used colors, like emerald, ruby red and yellow to represent the Wizard of Oz theme. 

This was a fun challenge and I look forward to do the upcoming challenge this Friday. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
