This was an interesting technique..I like how my bg turned out. I used a brown paper bag and sponged on distress inks, then spritzed with water to dilute the color. I then added some gesso that was thinned with water. I cut the teeny tiny pieces of the scene out of old books using my new Paper Smooches dies..eeck..talk about small!! I hand drew the car and added tiny paper punched circles for the tires. I think that's it..thanks for looking!

Your city scene/travel card is just fabulous, Polly. Love how you used the test paper for the elements of your scene and the bg is lovely. The little car moving along on the road to its destination is "Polly Fun".

I always love seeing what you create for this weekly challenge, Polly - this is just fabulous!! Love your cityscape scene, wonderful colouring with the distress inks, and then your sentiment with the car on the road forward - just brilliant!!
