Today the teaparty is hosted by Marie & we are headed to TX to help Linda (hotwheels). Linda makes cards to inspire kids.
I headed to the computer & coloring pages to find a 'hot' car. I can picture a young man behind the wheel. I'm thinking he hopes it really isn't 'arrest me red' as he's zooming around in this!! I'm sure she has some older boys who'd like this one!
I colore with Real Red watercolor crayon & blender pen. I fussy cut the car & there is acetate where I cut out the windows that doesn't show in the photo. I cut a mask also & brayered the sky. I added acrylic white paint clouds with a paintbrush. I added a tree, some grass & a gravel road. there is also glossy accents on the lights & silver gel pen for the chrome. It wasn't hard to do but I gave it a 2 for time. I spent all afternoon on two cards!! I'm not complaining either! I like both results.
I hope you might like to join the party - you can read about it here.
Thanks for stopping by.

Oh my gosh Karen this is fantastic. It must look amazing in real life especially with the acetate windows. Your brayering is wonderful my friend. Everything about this card is wonderful and will know doubt be loved by the recipient.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
