Phew......Time For A Breather!!!

Hoooey........I have had a busy few days........hence lack of blog posts. Just been too tired to drag myself down the stairs to the computer once I'd finished at night. Very sorry about that.
Tonight though I have managed to get the stuff done that I need for the workshop tomorrow and have a bit of free time too.......can't be bad eh? is a card I designed for two lovely ladies who who came for a workshop today. They both wanted to make a card for a man and I haven't done a car card for a bit so I decided to do one without resorting to map paper or the colour!!! Although there is a tiny bit of map on one of the papers.
So this is a Personal Impressions stamp which has been stamped twice and coloured with Adirondack Stonewashed ink. The tyres were coloured with a Marvy Le Plume pen and then detail was coloured using a silver gel pen.
Once all the colouring was done and dried I antiqued the two images with chalks and on the bottom image I made a watery wash of ink and filled a fluffy paintbrush which I then dragged across a ruler to get the speckles.
After matting and layering the images I added some Glossy Accents to parts of the car for a bit of dimension.
The paper used is the Blue Awning collection from K & Co.

Well I should have been breaking up for a weeks holiday tomorrow and boy am I ready for that week off. I changed it to the week after though as it means I get time off with both hubby and DD..........a bit crafty really as it means I will have helping hands when I start the decorating I have to do.........a hall, two flights of stairs and a landing. I am really wishing that I had asked hubby to get somebody!!! Probably be glad to get back to work for a rest.

I am off to play for another hour before bed.
Night night...........and thanks for dropping by.

  1. Hi Sheila, another different card, I bet your class ladies were pleased with it. I haven't seen the new papers by K&Co as yet, hope they are in the shop as they are one of my favorite companies.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
