Textured Cars


I was recently given some old cards to up-cycle, and as soon as I saw this background my mind went to these chipboard cars that I recently purchased.

The cars were painted with black gesso, then run through the cuttlebug in a Tim Holtz folder, and had Inka Gold rubs in Gold and Bronze rubbed on them.

I stamped some bubble wrap onto the background with Staz On Timber Brown ink,

Then added some magic mesh (from my stash, it is over 10 years old and it still stuck!!) and rubbed some Inka Gold Silver rub over it.

The final addition was the sentiment panel - a silver embossed stamp from Kiwi Stamping, (again an original from way back) The letters were filled in with a sparkling blue pen, and rubbed silver around the edge before adhering the panel with silver brads.
