TSMONDAY, Kickin' It Old School!

Hi Everyone! It's Monday, that means Totally Stampalicious Challenge time! This week we are challenging you to get out a stamp that hasn't seen ink for at least 6 months or so! There's also a prize for one lucky winner this week, you'll get to choose one of the 4 original Totally Stampalicious sets!

I've used one of the original four Totally Stampalicious sets today, this is Road Hawg! I loved this set as soon as I saw it in the SCS Gallery when it was first released!

OK I went a little out of my element today with colours for a biker, but I decided to use up a piece of paper I had left from using the Ink Spray & Smash technique! The background piece I made was sprayed with the gold shimmer spritz, & I thought it might be cool to use gold on the bike instead of silver!

The card base is black with a layer of baja breeze stamped with a tire track stamp I bought a while back at our local craft store. I stamped it in basic grey and then sponged the edges with the baja breeze.

The Road Hawg was stamped onto white and coloured with copics. Then I coloured over the pipes and handle bars with the gold uni-ball pen. Then because I kept cutting the image panel in the wrong spot!!! I ended up cutting the whole thing out and backing it with black!

The gears were made with the SU punch, and the sentiment is from the Road Hawg set!

So dig out some old stamps and join us in our challenge. There will be a prize drawn this week, and remember all Guest Designers and chosen from those who play in the weekly challenge! Just make sure to upload your creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog for your chance to win!

Have a Great Day!
