I turned to MDS -- once again -- to make this sophisticated hybrid card. Only the main focal image was generated through MDS.
The old bike image from the recent Sale-A-Bration stamp set Feeling Sentimental was perfect for what I had intended. Not possessing the actual stamp set, I turned to the set I had in my MDS arsenal of wonders.
I chose a Designer Series Paper that fit with the antique feel of the image, decreasing the opacity of the DSP so the sketchy bike showed up better.
After printing out the image, I headed down to my creation station to finish the card. The Chevron Embossing Folder added more dimension and a masculine touch, as did the color scheme of (retired) River Rock, Cajun Craze and Basic Gray, with a spark of copper in the brads.
Happy Birthday to my son-in-law, Stephen!
