Funny Friday with Art Impressions: Born To Ride

Welcome everyone to our latest edition of Funny Friday!  Each month we showcase a new Art Impressions set to make you smile. Today I’m using the hilarious Born To Ride set. This gal in the sidecar is probably one of my favorites.

I’m loving the new slimline cards and thought it would be fun to create a faux road for these cheerful riders.

I started out by stamping the comical characters using Simon’s Intense Black Ink onto 80lb Neenah cardstock. I colored them using Copics and followed the color scheme from the packaging. Once they were colored, I fussy cut them leaving a small border.

I cut a panel of Soft Navy cardstock just smaller than the slimline card, then cut a wonky piece of black cardstock to simulate a blacktop road. I dry brushed (no water) it with Hickory Smoke Distress paint to add a faded centerline. I also stamped tire treads to show the route our little lady took in her sidecar.

I mounted the more experienced rider with a bit of foam tape, and Gramma… well she’s mounted using a Mini Action Wobbler for added fun.

To finish this card off, I cut some of the Reverse Happy sentiment strips for my messages.

I hope you have been inspired by this cheerful card. Happy Friday!!!

  1. This is such a fun, cute card. I love the attention to detail that Shari brings from the polka dot scarf for her and the flag scarf for him!

  2. I love this card!!! Reminds me of when a local bikers group took my grandma and others from her retirement home on rides. She was 98 at the time, she loved it!!!

  3. Having been motorcyclists for many years I can find this to be rather endearing! Love Art Impressions so much and this one is surely special. Great job Shari and I do love all the details you added, it’s perfect! Plus a wobble, eek…

  4. Love the bandana detail! This looks like a couple I know….except for the sidecar! :-)
    I am definitely getting this stamp set–thank you for the great slimline design idea!

  5. I adore Art Impression stamps! They are some of the greatest stamps around. Thanks for sharing this fun card with us.
