MC Feb/13 - Classic Cars - HB
I was cleaning out some drawers in my art room and came across a little baggie with a bunch of squares from some hand made decorated paper I can't even remember from when... So I started playing and rearranging them and this is the results.
It's also not my usual card fold - I really don't like top fold cards, they always fall flat on their behinds, but that's what this one is. 8.5"w x 4"h from cream cardstock.
The green squares are some faux patina I was experimenting with. The brown are some sponged technique and then spritz with Glimmer Mist I think. I adhered them to the same cream cardstock as the card, then onto a mesh decorated paper (Design Master spray paint through a mesh, also done eons ago), then onto another dark brown decorated cardstock with some kind of shimmery mist, then onto the card front.
The cars (Marianne Designs) were die cut from black paper I had painted with gold streaks and some other colors (also eons ago) then sponged with Distress Pine Needles and clear embossed.
Wrote the sentiment :You're a Classic" on some cream cardstock and then cut it out in an arrow shape.
Stamped the birthday sentiment (Quietifre Design) with Versafine Black Onyx ont he cream and cut an arrow shape.
I'm content and used up a few more pieces from my never ending stash...
