Vintage Car

Another card which was the result of experimenting well outside my comfort zone, but which I thoroughly enjoyed making. The backing paper was made using an Imagination Crafts Diamond background stencil, sponging through it with various Distress & Memento inks.  When it was finished I didn’t like the white background so I brayered over it with Distress Antique Linen.  Straight edges to the paper just didn’t look right somehow, so I tore them & re-inked the edges with Antique Linen again.

The main image from Inkadinkado was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto an Inkylicious tag which was sponged round the edges with Distress Antique Linen.  I replaced the original string with twine.

The numbers started out as bare chipboard which I gessoed (is there such a word?!), embossed in my Cuttlebug & inked repeatedly until the colour was fairly close to the Kraft base card – closer than the photos would have you believe.  I also sponged round the edges of the base card to add a little bit of extra depth.
More experiments to follow!
