TCP Tuesday 293-No Road Is Too Long

It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas!  Christine is our hostess this week and she's shared a fabulous summery photo collage for us to be inspired by.  I took my inspiration from the bicycle in one of the photos and used the Besties set and the CutUps Slider die to make an interactive card.

No Road Is Too Long card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's PajamasI colored the bike riding penguin pair with Copic markers, then set the finished image in a simple scene.  I made the road from gray cardstock, then cut a slit in it using the slider die.  After adding a strip of die cut grass on top of the "road," I used foam tape to adhere it to a piece of aqua dotted paper.  I attached the slider tabs to the back of the bike image, then set it in the slider track.  Too fun! 

I filled in the rest of the scene with some clouds cut with the Stitched Clouds dies and a little scalloped circle sun.  One of the set's sentiments was stamped in black ink on a contrasting red cardstock strip and adhered to the left side of the card.

Be sure to stop by the TCP blog for more inspiration and for all the details on how you can play along with the challenge.  Challenge participants have a chance to win a Cat Cash prize (with a little extra thrown in if you use TCP stamps/dies) and to be named the Swanky Stamper of the month, which earns you a slot in an upcoming TCP release blog hop along with a selection of stamps from the release!  Be sure to link up your card on the TCP blog for a chance to win.

Besties stamp set, CutUps Grass, Slider and Stitched Clouds dies (The Cat's Pajamas); Versafine Onyx Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Lemon Tart, and Smokey Shadow cardstock, Aqua Mist patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); Real Red and Shimmery White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); scalloped circle die (Martha Stewart); foam tape
