I made this for today's Inspiration Challenge - Inspired by Mackenzie - Childs - this is the Chandelier (Cheltenham) that was my Inspiration http://www.mackenzie-childs.com/prod...ge=0&vao=0
Stamped diamonds from "Looks like spring" - set in basic black onto going gray. Matted with handsome hunter. Main card is 5x5. Stamped car image twice on white card stock. Water coloured one image with basic grey, coloured wheels and running board with basic black. Coloured hubcaps and chrome with light grey marker. Clear embossed windows, hubcaps, bumper and grill to give it a shine. Masked bottom image and stippled around image with basic grey and basic black. Popped up image. matted with black, hunter and white. Cut a strip of black and hunter, used Martha Stewart border punch on them and also on the bottom edges of the main card. All edges were rubbed with silver metallic rub-ons. Added the photo corners with the brads. Added the brads along the black bottom MS border. Main panel and car panel are up on dimensionals. Tied on the striped ribbon. I made this card for my Boss's 50th birthday party.
