For the Boys!
For today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, to make a masculine card or project! I find these so challenging, but I was inspired by Betsy Veldman's card seen HERE and decided to try a "Vintage Bug" card of my own!
Sorry for the terrible lighting, but this is a late entry! I inked the solid car image in the Enjoy the Ride set, and then kissed the stamp to some of my old woodblock background stamps. Then I stamped the car outline over the top. I distressed the card heavily with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Antique Linen and Tea Dye, with some Vintage Photo ink around the edge. Then I inked up my Cornish Heritage Farms Weave Backgrounder with Vintage Cream ink, and stamped it over the top of the whole finished piece. The car piece is up on dimensionals and slightly overlaps the bottom pieces. Ran the Smokey Shadow sentiment strip through my Cuttlebug with the Linen Impression plate side. The bottom is kraft cardstock with the Woodgrain Impression plate and Tea Dye ink.
While I am not quite happy with the placement of my cars, I love the whole idea and will definitely try this idea again. Thanks Betsy for the inspiration to try this out!
