I wish I would have had access to this nice little bicycle years ago when I did a LAYOUT of my mom and dad back in 2009 but back in those days *okie thinks that sounds funny saying back in those days since it was only 7 years ago* but I did not and I had to make a bicycle out of what was available to me and that meant using the George cartridge and it's basic shapes to design a bicycle.
Fast forward to today and this great bicycle cut can be found on the CTMH FLOWER MARKET cartridge and I couldn't wait to cut it once I saw it. The problem was that I had to think of something to use it for and obviously a card was the choice I made.
I cut the bicycle a little bigger than I had intended and that is due to me...yep, you guessed it - still not use to using Design Space for figuring out what I want to cut *okie isn't sure she will ever get use to the program*.
I really should have cut the little flowers a different color but when I did cut them I didn't know I would be using orange for the mat of the card. The darker flowers were a lighter orange and it just looked washed out so I hit them with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze to help break up the color a little. The green fluff is Flower Soft and I love this stuff to add dimension and embellishment.
The "HI THERE" is a sentiment that came with the CTMH FLOWER MARKET collection and I inked the "HI" and stamped and then inked the "THERE" and stamped so I could put a little bit of a curve to match the banner. The banner is also from the cartridge and I cut it about in half and used the piece I cut off to go behind the stamped sentiment. The pole, well it's actually a stem image from the cartridge. I was looking for something to use as a pole and when I saw the single stem I opted for it and I liked how it had a slight curve to make it look like it was blowing in the wind a little.
I'm having a lot of fun with this cartridge and am looking at more images on the cartridge so I can see what else I can make.
If you would like to order this cartridge just go to CTMH FLOWER MARKET COLLECTION.
