Recycled Car

Welcome

Another 'boy' card, and again a recycled element, and this time it is the image, which was fussy cut off an old card.


I started with a creamy card base, and sprayed it with some silver and gold shimmer sprays.


Some black and white papers were woven to form a base, and this panel was mounted above a strip of silver and clear washi tape.


The sentiment was gold embossed on red card, and die cut, with a gold pen run around the inside of the die before it was removed.  In this photo you can see some of the shimmering background.

  6. Wow This was so well done! I like how you wove the paper for the checkerboard floor, and great job with the embossing! You must also have a steady hand to use the gold pen so well. Cute card!
