On The Road

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.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Creative Moments - Holidays (as in Vacations)
Crafty Cardmakers - Holidays (as in Vacations)
Digi Makeover - Anything Goes (must use a digi)
Alota Rubber Stamps - Vintage
Emergency Crafters - Summer Days & Holidays
Seema Crafts - Holiday/Vacation
