A Vintage Car

Hiya folks!

Hope you are all well this fine Friday? Just got back from my local craft shop after spending a fortune - didn't get much either!! That's the price of punches for you. . . Bought myself a Martha Stewart border punch and an EK Success large flower, one of those slimline ones. HOW MUCH??!!!

Right, I've calmed down a bit now, so here I am with a card for the Men-folk. I have followed the sketch at Totally Gorjuss for this card - hope the ladies there don't mind a man-card. . .?

I have used my digital image of a Vintage Car for this one, coloured with my usual watercolour pencils and layered with foam pads. This is available for purchase in my shop:

The ribbon is from the stash, as are the brads. They aren't on the sketch, but I felt it needed an extra something. Being made of metal they should fit OK with the theme at DU2DS this fortnight as it is 'Metal'. And the theme at A Spoon Full of Sugar is 'Men/Boys', so this is fine for that one too. The background is from a sheet of car images I had that I scanned in and made into a tint with the compy. I have inked the edges too just to take the stark edges off.

In the circle there is also a faint tinted image, this time from a photo of the Jaguar that you get on the bonnet/hood of these cars sometimes. I haven't put one on my image though, as it would have been very small and fiddly!

Right, still needing to finish my DT work for next week, then off to think about tea for the kids - oh the joys!!

Teri, it's wonderful! I too have been crafty shopping and spent too much, although I've put it away for my Birthday - still feeling guilty about the crayons! I'm off to do some DT stuff too. Trying to get a bit ahead of myself - this next half term is a bit of a tough one with things happening at work x
