Vroom Vroom...

This week at the Magnolia Vs. Stampavie Challenge there is an awesome sketch. Of course I had to turn mine.

















I started by coloring on of the FABULOUS Stampavie Leere Aldrich images. This is "Going Places"... and I just love the convertible! It reminds me of the MGA Hubby had when we dated and married.








Colored with my Copics, and high lighted with white gel pen, I then I took the close up photo with an odd angle so you could also see the dimensional glaze I added... a really shiny wax job on this car!








The pattern papers are all My Minds Eye Laundry Line collection. Again hard to see in the photo, but they all have a glitter to them. Love these papers. I matted everything with BoBunny scraps of brown dotted paper, and for some fun I used a Martha Stewart Border punch on the side of the image mat. The base is a dark brown card stock. The edges of everything is inked. I love the ribbon.. and am getting really low on it! American Crafts I believe - Sorry my bow is so sad looking, it just wouldn't stay up and pretty. The sketch shows a pin on the corner of the image, and by luck I found a heart pin by Heidi Grace to use on mine. I was stumped for a time on what to use for a sentiment. You see because I turned my card on its side and my image was so large, I didn't have much room for a sentiment. I decided to do something vertical - and found these wonderful Paper Studio letter dots - the match pretty well I think. I doodled the edges of the image, and then for a finishing touch... I used silver adhesive dots for hubcaps on the car!








You really must go and see the rest of the DT cards - it amazes me how different so many cards can look all made with the same sketch as a starting place. Wonderful! Hope you will join in this week too!

I had a lot of comments asking me when Macie is due... my fat pregnant donkey. She still has about another two months - imagine carrying that around that much longer!
