Hero Arts City Adventures

Howdy! Today I have a card over at a2z Scrapbooking about getting out there and checking out a big city near you.

San Francisco is about 45 minutes away when the traffic is decent. Of course I have been there many times. I am lucky almost all the time we go we get nice weather instead of a foggy day. My husband works in San Francisco so he sees it every week day.

To start off I did some ink blending on the background. That is after I adjusted the size of the bridge and printed it on the cardstock. I even looked up the hex code for the color of the Golden Gate. I don’t remember the code but the color is called international orange.

I then sized the scooter and the car and printed those. I colored with Copics, a metallic pen in silver and a Pen-touch pen. On the windows of the car I used Nuvo Glaze. The first time I did the windows on the car it looked all ripply like old house windows. So I just printed it again, colored again and added the Nuvo Glaze.  The first time I used the drops and the glaze to fix it and it just did not work. You can’t really see it on the scooter but I put a touch of Nuvo on the headlight. I hand cut the car and scooter. I put some foam tape under the car and the scooter when attaching them. As far as the car I had to have that VW on there and it had to be orange. My first car.

I die cut a little bird and colored it gray with a Copic.

I stamped the sun and since it was more of an outline sun I did some ink blending on it.

Then there is the sentiment stamped with Versafine ink.

  1. I love the VW and of course the bridge, always my favorite bridge, which I’ve been over many times, though mostly the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge the most. It’s about a two hour drive for me. I just haven’t made time to drive down. I think I’ll just take a bus tour down and let the driving to them, eat at the Cliff House.

    You brought up many fun memories. I also had a VW for my first car and loved it. Your card is a brilliant capture of all the fun things in life.
