The A Muse Blue Light Special, featuring Holiday Car, reminded me of this fun design which I taught during A Muse-a-Palooza back in July this year!


Notice, my beloved Cityscape has a supporting role in this performance!  I done tol’ ya’all that I am obsessed with that stamp!  *chortle*  Anyway, this is a great example of how to use "scale", and manipulate images of mis-matched sizes, to create depth perception in scenic stamping, on a two-dimensional surface.

Cityscape sits along a visually created horizon line in the background.  The white card stock pieces were trimmed at angles to create the illusion of a roadway receding towards the city in the distance.  The car has been trimmed out and mounted towards the lower front of the design, in a "foreground" position, and further enhances the three-dimensional effect.

As luck would have it, the largest of the clear Twinkle Stickers fit PERFECTLY on the headlights!    Zoom zoom zoom! (sing-song voice, just like the TV commercial–aaaaah, geeze, I crack myself!!!)

Stamps:  Holiday Car, Cityscape (A Muse Artstamps); Paper:  French Blue Note Card (A Muse); Ribbon: Black Sheer (A Muse); Clear Twinkle Stickers (A Muse); Copic Markers:  R30 Garnet, YG95 Pale Olive; Inks:  Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko), Fluid Chalk Ice Blue, Prussian Blue (Clearsnap); Other: Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, foam mounting tape
