An old ‘un but a good un’

Torn and Distressed Edges is the theme at Craft Your Passion this week.We have 3 fab sponsors too!Doodle Pantry,The Paper Shelter and Pizzazz Aplenty.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Vintage Auto from Doodle Pantry.You get so much in this amazing set.As well as 2 versions of the car,with and without suitcases in front,you get loads of sentiments,2 suitcase images plus 3 black and white outline papers.I coloured the car (without suitcases)  and suitcases with Polychromos pencils and blended with low odour oils thinners using a paper stump.I applied Distress Inks around the edges.I printed one of the papers from the set onto kraft,the panel behind the car.I also applied Distress Inks to the sentiment that’s tucked behind the image.I just had to use another piece of these scrummy  Papermania Capsule Collection papers.All layers have been roughed up using a distressing tool and Distress Inks blended around the edges .To finish some matching Capsule Polka Mini Buttons that have been threaded and a length of hairy string (love this stuff!) recycled from a clothing price tag  have been added.Well that’s a third Father’s Day card completed!This time it’s for my FIL.Haven’t quite made up my mind whether the words apply to him or the car – think I’ll let him decide 😉
