A Vintage Motor

Hi everyone hope you are all well!  & enjoying the Easter weekend. 
I have a vintage piece for you today. 

I started with swiping distress paint vintage photo, gathered twigs 
& walnut stain onto a craft mat and sprayed with
water from a mini mister.

I swiped my card through and paint and sprayed with the mini mister as I dried
it so the paints blended together. I sealed it all with a matt 

I inked up the Debbie Cotton car stamp Earls Automotive with 
Black onyx versafine & clear embossed it. Next I painted 
the entire card bar the car with cream acrylic paint.

I used blended distress inks in the following colours vintage photo,
walnut stain & scattered straw to colour spare card stock. 

Onto this I stamped images from the following stamps winged wheel &
 numerical plate. The numbers were stamped in 
archival ink cornflower blue.

The clock was an old one I had done previously from the 
Time & keys plate that had been covered in glossy 
accents and a curtain ring was attached.

I used ripped pages & glued them to the main image. I used two die cuts
which I stamped with the ruler stamp of the Empemera plate 
and I used this to frame the project.

I backed it all onto ripped cardboard that I had swiped walnut stain
paint. Please let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
