Sepia Toned Bicycle Card

Posted by on May 3, 2015

There is a fun transportation themed challenge over at The Paper Players this week. I combined it with this month’s sketch from Craft Project Central’s Creating Pretty Cards challenge.


I don’t have a lot of transportation related stamps. No planes, no trains, no automobiles.  There is a bicycle in Sheltering tree, and a couple hot air balloons, but I decided to go with the old-fashioned bicycle in the soon-to-be retired Timeless Talk stamp set. I played up on the old-fashioned qualities by using shades of brown for a sepia look.

Sepia Bicycle Card by Yapha

Stamps: Timeless Talk
Ink: Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, 2013-2015 In Colors Designer Series Paper
Other: Early Espresso 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon

I really like playing along with this challenge over at Craft Project Central. Not only do you have a chance to win a free month of projects, but they give you all of the exact measurements for the sketch!

    I just love the monochromatic color combo you used, Yapha. The sepia tones really give it a vintage feel and I just love how the bicycle pops off the mix of patterns. So pretty! Thank you so much for joining us this week at The Paper Players! 🙂
