Papertrey Ink's June Create Along with Us

Today, I have a card to share for Papertrey Ink's June Create Along with Us,
where I was inspired by this card by the fabulous Amy Sheffer:
 
 
Isn't it super fun?
I love how she used the Big Sky Cover Plate and added the buildings.
I decided to use the same cover plate, but teamed it with Pedal Pusher instead.
 
 
 
 
I started by diecutting a piece of white cardstock with the Big Sky Cover Plate
and layering it over a piece of aqua mist cardstock.
I added some Hawaiian shores ink to it using my blending tool
and stamped the buildings using an image from the Masterpiece kit.
I stamped the bike from Pedal Pusher onto its coordinating diecut
in Green Parakeet and versafine onyx black.
For the ground, I cut two strips of cardstock and blended ink
onto them using green parakeet and Altenew evening grey.
I diecut the green one using a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border die.

 
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of cardstock, like Amy did.
I stamped it first in green parakeet and then, using my MISTI,
stamped it a second time, after I inked up only the top part
using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
 
Thanks for looking!
