Drunken Stampers challenge #119: Grease!

Hello my peeps and welcome to another week with the Drunken Stampers! We are on challenge #119: Grease!

This term is all about movies! You can either design a card based on the movie title, or use the sub-title, or go crazy and combine BOTH! This week my team, The Midnight Margaritas, are up and this is what I came up with:

and the inside of the card:

I have a few classic car stamps, but they are all sooooo tiny! I needed something bigger! So, riffling through my paper collections I came across this classic car sticker from Echo Park's Happy Days collection! PERFECT! I stuck it on some scrap white card stock, cut around it, and stuck it on with some foam squares. But before I did that, let me give you the breakdown of this card! I trimmed a panel in gray card stock, stamped the music score on it (because this is a musical, after all!), and embossed it with a diamond plate embossing folder. Then I used some Ranger Walnut Stain and went over the diamonds to make it look like it's been walked over a lot with greasy boots! (as in a mechanic shop!) Trimmed a white panel, hand drew and colored the lightning bolt, stuck that onto yellow card stock that I trimmed with pinking shears, and adhered to the card. Cut out a "dark cloud" form from the black patterned paper, inked the edges and adhered. Added a red boarder sticker. Used my alpha stamps and stamped 'greased lightning!' trimmed, inked edges and popped that up on foam dots! On the inside, I used my alpha stamps again for the inside sentiment and finished with more boarder stickers! How friggin' awesome is that!!!

So I hope I have you all in the mood to get crafty and play along with this weeks Drunken Stamper challenge #119: Grease! Make sure you check out the other Midnight Margaritas as well to see what crafty goodness they all dreamed up!
