Un gars et son char... Greased Lightning


                                                                    (The english text follows the french one.)


Bon Dimanche,
Cette semaine un des mes fistons aura 26 ans. Je me devais de lui faire une carte originale. Fiston est un gars de truck et de char! Je voulais partiper à un défi, comme j'aime beaucoup la musique, MDU proposait une carte inspirée d'une chanson. Je suis partie de John Travolta dans Grease,  et j'ai trouvé la chanson Greased lightning; puis Magnolia-licious propose un défi noir etblanc...Je venaisde trouver le fil de mon inspiration... Vous rappelez-vous de John Travolta, dans Grease, impeccable en train de réparer une vieille voiture? La chanson c'était Grease Lightning.Juste au cas où cette chanson du très sexy John ne vous dit rien, voilà je vous le livre en mille!!!!!!!!


 Happy Sunday,
This week, my eldest son will turn 26!  I wanted to create a special card for him, and play a few challenges at the same time! My inspiration came from MDU whose challenge is "Inspired by a song"; then I saw Magnolia-licious, black & white... and  I just flipped over! Yessssssssss, my son is a car & truc guy, soooo I found the Grease lyrics: Greased Lightning, and sarted from there....


Pour ma carte je suis allée chercher Cool Edwin, et Tilda's car (chut, faut pas dire que c'est un "char" de fille) en plus j'ai dû faire une rotation d'image, mon sketch prévoyait la déco à gauche et je voulais Edwin sur l'aluminium. Le tout colorié aux crayons Copics, avec les gris froids. Je vous partage une expérience: j'utilise souvent le papier Copic Cryogen White, mais celui-ci n'est pas blanc pur, il ne fait aucune différence lorsque l'on colore en couleurs, mais en noir et gris, c'et bien évident. Ce qui devrait ressortir blanc, prend une teinte jaune... Je coloriais à la lumière d'un néon, et lorsque j'ai monté ma carte avec le papier blanc, j'ai bien vu le reflet non souhaité. Disons, que si j'avais travaillé avec des gris chauds, le résultat aurait été parfait; mais avec du gris froid (les C) c'est pas l'idéal. Mais il est trop tard pour tout recommancer! La prochaine fois j'imprimerai sur papier X-Press. J,aimerais aussi attirer votre attention sur la bordure d'aluminium embossé avec un plioir de Cuttlebug; ça fait un travail vraiment spectaculaire, et une déco très originale.

I thought Cool Edwin was just perfect as John Travolta, and Tilda's car (chut! do not mention it is a girl's car!) was just great. But it was not on the right side, so I flipped my image 180 degrees horizontally to have Edwin in front of the embossed aluminium border. I  colored with Copics, all cool grey collection. I will share with a a detail that hit me only when I was about to mount my card:  I colored on Cryogen white, by habit, and did not notice the yellowish shade of this white, until I placed it over the black and white paper. Next time, I will use X-Press blending card for such project, but it was too late to start over.




Pour l'intérieur, j'ai fait une petite pochette, décorée avec la même bordure d'aluminium embossé, et j'ai utilisé un spellbinder pour créer une petite enveloppe afin d'y glisser notre cadeau.
Inside, I created a little slit, decorated with the same aluminium embossed border, to insert a little pocket made with spellbinders; I will place our gift in there!





Voilà, c'est tout pour moi aujourd'hui, j'ai d'autres petits projets, espérons que mon horaire va contribuer!
That is it for me today, I have other small projects, and hope my schedule will contribute.

Danielle, ooh a fabulous card for your soon. I think this is the perfect Edwin image, especially with his hand tucked in his pocket. Doesn't he look like Edwin with an attitude? Just like John Travolta...LOL. Your colouring is B&W is fab. Kudos to all of you attempted this. I yet have to do it...LOL. Love your embossed metal sheet--I'm going to try that someday. Thanks for the inspiration. Love the card!!!
Hugs,
Norma
