Are you like me in this way?  Sometimes I stamp an image and donot seem to be inspired at that moment. But then later on as I keep looking at the stamped image sitting off to the side on desk, I pick it up and start to work on it.   That happened tonight as I was working on some other cards for the Technique Junkie Stamps June Release.  

I picked up this Technique Junkie Stamps March release called  French Bicycle Collage  

I used Copic markers and lots of sponging.  I swirled brown ink around the edges bringing in the color past the tire edges.  Then I applied  blue in the center.  I added a heavier sponging on the edge of the focal image.  Since the bike frame is red I knew that I would layer this focal image or red card stock.  So I also applied a very light sponging with red ink on the edge of the focal image. I add a brown ribbon ruffle on the bottom of the card.  I decided it need some other embellishment so I looked at some new Tim Holtz metal ribbon slides I had recently purchased.  I thought this went well with this image.  To highlight the letters in the metal ribbon slide i sponged on paint from Festive Berries Distress Paint daubers and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping off the excess paint on the metal surface. 

The final layer was on the brown base card. 

Have a great day and get inky!

That sentiment works perfectly with the bicycle. Great card.
