Res-Q 36 for Chris

I got most of my chores done early today so I sat down to do a little Saturday night stamping tonight! This card is for this week's Res-Q Challenge. Denise asked us to make a boy's birthday card, taking inspiration from a list of her son Chris' favorite things in honor of his birthday yesterday. See all the details of the challenge HERE! From Denise's list, I selected cars, the color blue and bubble wrap. I had a nice piece of bubble wrap in my garage - I save all the packaging from stuff I order or receive with gifts in the mail and recycle it when I send stuff out. Anyway, this particular piece was slightly sticky on the back, so I cut a rectangle off, stuck it to an acrylic block and inked it up to make the circle background on this card. Fun, right? The car is an ancient $1 stamp from Michaels, colored with Copics. The little brads are from my stash; I think I recycled them from an old RAK. They have little dents in them so they look like screws.
Supplies:
Stamps: Sentiment -SU All Holidays; car - Michaels $1 stamp
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, basic gray, bordering blue, Copic markers
Paper: basic gray, bordering blue, ballet blue, whisper white
Accessories: brads, bubble wrap, Cuttlebug mesh embossing folder
