Today is my hubby's birthday and i made this card for him. I started by working out how to position the wording on a piece of scrap paper first. I had to juggle them a bit and realized that i couldn't fit them in well so i put the symbol for and rather than the word and this fitted better. I stamped all around perimeter of an 8x8 card in cobalt blue archival ink.
Next i started to work on topper. I started with the car first which i stamped on clarity card in same ink. i masked car and created background with distress inks, ink dusters, torn paper and make-up sponges. Then i stamped trees from lesson 21 and the edge on road from same set of stamps.
I added glossy accents to wind screen, head lamps and wheels. The topper was matted on navy blue linen card.
The card still looked a bit bare so i decided to add the metal corners. However they were the wrong colour. So I gilded them with midnight black, patina and silver gilding waxes and mounted them on opposite corners.
I really hope he likes it. Whatever you do have a good day Theresa xx
