Wheely vintage

We have a sketch for you to follow at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week :

To be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate for Digi Doodle Shop please visit the challenge site for full details.Don’t forget to take a peek at the DT’s wonderful work!

I really wanted to work with this fabulous 1930 Roadster from Digi Doodle Shop.It’s such a classic guy’s image.As you can see I had to s-t-r-e-t-c-h the sketch to accommodate it.I watercoloured it using Tea Dye Distress Ink ,adding a little Vintage Photo to darken the tyres, then applied some around the edges too.Once it was dry I clear embossed and when cool I bent the card to make cracks appear.I rubbed it over with more Distress Ink to bring them out and for a more shabby look.I did the same to the sentiment I printed on the computer.I took a piece of patterned paper, screwed it up (how could I ?!),gave it a rub over with Distress Ink,then roughened the edges allowing it to tear in one place (more paper abuse!).The angled panel and die cut cogs were passed through an embossing folder and even more ink was applied.To give a softer look I spritzed it lightly with water and dabbed it gently with a tissue.I’m so glad I did this.I usually pluck die cuts straight from the machine and plonk them onto my card.Doing something like this just adds so much more interest.I’d like to think this card demonstrates that you can use the same creative techniques for digi stamps that are applied to rubber stamps.

    Fantastic card. I love the antiquing and then the crackle work. That’s a cool way to make it crackle. I would use the easy way out and use the crackle product. Beautiful work. Hugs, dj
