Race Car For Issac

Welcome

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.

The personalized license plate is way too cool. That is an interesting background, makes for a bumpy road but really nifty looking.
