Shadow Play Bicycle

Shadow Play Bicycle

Hi All!

Today I’m using Altenew’s Shadow Play set. I’ve used it before on this card and this card. I love the uniqueness of it!

I used an acrylic block to create a watercolor background with oxide ink, and then I tried to focus all my card elements on this block. Here is a close-up:

    It looks so easy when you do it but I think I’d be a nervous wreck trying to get everything lined up to look as good as your card looked. You make it seem so easy too!

    Such a nice, simple card design. Love the graphic look of the bicycle & shadow, and that little bird sitting on the bicycle seat is so darn cute! I think the background came out fine–you’d never know in the end that it didn’t “stamp” like it was supposed to. I also like the interest the splatters add. Thanks so much for sharing this! Hope you’re enjoying this cooler weather. Now if only the dreariness of the clouds would move on so we could get some sunshine back as well! 😺 ~ Andrea

    Great looking card, the bike really pops off the background. I’ve got the Shadow Play SS so will have a crack at this one.
    It came together so well.

    I often forget to add splatters…it really adds a lot! Great card! 😎

    This is a great card! I struggle sometimes with applying ink with the block. This helps me to stress less about it and fix it. I often have too much water. Love the bike and shadow too.
