Drivin in My Car

This was a fun "tag" to do. I used the fantastic new THoltz alterations, Jalopy die cut to cut both chipboard & DT kit paper. I used his masks for the word car & than colored using distress stains. If you haven't tried these - they are very fun & versatile. After drying add some stamping with multiple images in ink & acrylic paint. I stamped the vintage gentleman & cut them out placing them in the windows-note the driver is the skeleton (this cracks me up every time). Next I stamped the "ticket to ride"- get it? It was distressed & attached with the memo pin. The metal sprockets were stamped with stazon & attached with brads. The floral metal is painted with acrylic dabbers & bent to look more dimensional. Finally I outlined the word car as it was a tad washed out. I plan to use this on a scrapbook page. Enjoy!

Wow, that fun 'tag' you made clearly showcases your creativity. I love the distressed look you incorporated in it. Placing photographs of people inside the 'mini-car' was a nice touch. Continue with the crafting. The important thing is to enjoy what you are doing. :)
