Gold Plated Model T


I was going to blog this some days ago, but life got in the way... as it does!

The start of this card was the receipt of a 'new to me' stamp, which I promptly inked up and stamped multiple times on a scrap of white card.

I then stamped the Model T Delivery Van stamp with Delicata Gold ink, and made two impressions, then I cut the vans away from the wording.

I then cut one of the van images  in half, and placed the three images on the background. Note the wonderful sparkle the ink gives when the light catches it!!

I also cut the title out and added that to the background.

Next I stamped the greeting and embossed it in copper, trimmed it and rubbed the edges  over the ink pad I had used for the back ground.  

The panel was mounted on an orange layer, and I ran some dashed lines up the edges to echo road markings.
I decided to place the sentiment over the edge of the panel for greater effect.
The whole was then mounted on black.

I am linking this to:
The background stamp was 'new to me', and the van stamp was used for the first time

This is a VERY cool card, Maxine. My Uncle Danny had a Model T Ford when I was a little girl and he would take me for long rides. I used to call his car "The Chug-a-Boom" because of the noise it made. What a fantastic card, and thanks for the awesome memory!

P.S. Thanks for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday!
