Embarassing thing to admit about this card . . . I THINK this is a Ford Mustang (it's very annoying when stamp companies don't put a name on the stamp!!!# Tried to look this up on the Internet and I think I'm right. If I'm not, this card won't mean the same to the recipient, but I'll explain, so hope he gets a kick out of it one way or the other!
Borrowed the idea of the metallic bkgrd from http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...5?&si=mmtpt138. First used Spellbinders die on metallic paper, then thru ef. Used alcohol inks until I got the colour to match cs #it is not as purple IRL as in pic#. Stamped car image #after SEARCHING the Internet to find out what kind of car!!!) Used prismacolour pencils & gamsol to blend. Used distress inks around edge and around edge of cs and strip of DP.
Layered everything. Added pop dots to car image. The screws are brads that were pewter-colour. Used silver alcohol ink to match. tfl

Hey there Newbie! Welcome to the teaparty! Your card rocks and I should tell you that on Tuesdays anything you say goes. If you say this image is a Ford, then this image is a Ford! Ha! Whisper: Good idear about splaining it to Kim! Tee hee!
How nice you jumped on board with us to brighten Kim's day. Your card is so creative and fun! I love that big ole piece of metal diamond plate you brought to the teaparty!! That must weigh a ton, good thing you are close by to Kim! Fun *brads* too!
Oh, and I am 99.9% sure that's a Ford....A Mustang...Maybe even a Shelby.......the most coveted Ford ever. I just pretend to know what I am talking about on Tuesdays! Your card rocks!
