Well, it's more like a deep pink really:
- 6" x 6" square white card stock
- SU backing card - 'Primrose Petals'
- image is LOTV, bought in April at Ally Pally, it's ready coloured and is from their 'Vintage Boys' Art Pad, die cut using a Nesties Eight die and I did the usual trick with the 'Primrose Petals' layer behind the image
- backing paper is from Paper Cellar's 'Mens' paper pad. I spotted Sandra H using a different sheet from the pad on Monday and realised just how perfect the papers are for 'chaps cards' so thank you for the inspiration Sandra! Crumbs, ordered from Top Toppers and it arrived in double quick time, beautifully packed with DO NOT BEND written clearly on. They will certainly have my business anytime! I stuck the image on at an angle so that the cars on the backing paper wouldn't be totally hidden :)
- sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, backed with a Primrose Petals oval, punched with SU's 'Large Oval' punch
- a white Josy Rose nail head in each corner to finish off
The jury is still out here - I can't decide whether or not to add a tickle of glossy accents to the headlights and perhaps the windscreen. My in-house critic says it's fine as it is - so I've left it for now :)
Edit: I ought to have said something else about the pink card stock I used on Wednesday - despite being such a massive bargain, the thickness and quality is second to none. I honestly reckon they're the thickest cards I have - and believe me there's enough card stock here to open a shop myself!
I just checked the Craft Show leaflet we got at Newbury and the company was Anna Marie Designs - prices are higher online as we were sure they wanted to sell off their stock as the Sunday wore on. But if you do buy from them I think you'll be really pleased with the weight of the card they use and the quality of them as well! And I'm not on commission either.
What a cute little topper. Was getting ready to rave on your coloring, then re-read to see it was ready colored! Liked the angle position you used...it's hard sometimes to use the larger images well (at least for me anyway!). You did a fine job allowing your papers to shine through. I liked the headlights as is, so I'm with Len. TFS & stay cool.ReplyDelete
I always fancied a little red sporty number like that but alas I doubt I would never get out of one now if I managed to get in it in the first place! :-)ReplyDelete
A cute image and such lovely muted colours that I don't think it needs the glossy accents. Kate xReplyDelete

This is a lovely little card Di, great image for a little boy or a man!! Love the backing papers they look great with the image.ReplyDelete
As for the glaze - I love to glaze eyes, noses, etc so I know I would have glazed the headlights at least! My mission is to glaze at least one thing on a card - lol!!!
Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
If you do use glossy accents slap a cardboard lid upside down over it straight away cos the bugs are going mad for it over here. Ask me how I know!!!ReplyDelete
Sweet card and I like the colour. Hugs Mrs A. The Swat Team.
What a great image for a guy and how nice that it's already colored! I think it's perfect as is!ReplyDelete
