The challenge for the next two weeks at Sugar Creek Hollow is called WHEELS and we want you to create vintage or shabby chic cards featuring vintage things with wheels - cars, bicycles, wheelbarrows, etc.
We are pleased to welcome Doodle Pantry as a sponsor and they will providing one random winner with 3 images of their choice from the Doodle Pantry store.
I have created this collage type card reminiscent of going on holidays with the Vintage Auto image from Doodle Pantry that can be found here. I coloured it with Prismacolors that I blended with OMS. I cut an extra image and popped the luggage up a bit.
Then I went online to find the old map for the background, the signs and the ledger page. I used the Tim Holtz Collage Texture Fade to emboss the kraft layer. The sentiment came with the vintage auto image and added it to a hand cut tag and finished it with a Making Memories brad. Everything has been inked with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger to make it look even older.
To finish it off I added a button from my stash along with some suede lacing. This card will work for a guy so with my husband's birthday coming up in September, I am relieved to know that I will actually have a card done for him this year. Now I just have to remember it - LOL.
