Race Car For Issac


This card was made for a young boy turning four

The image is a Wags 'n' Whiskers Stamp called Speed Racer

I coloured the image with PrismaColor pencils, added some WoS on the car, fussy cut it and mounted it with foam dots on the background.

The background is one that I had made for another card, over a year ago, and then discarded.  It was made with modelling paste through a stencil, then painted with water colour paints and sprayed with a glimmer mist. 

I added the sentiment stamped and white embossed onto a scrap of card that matched my base, and cut it into a banner shape before adhering it.
