The Car Salesman

Hello Everyone
A card with a masculine theme for this post.  I made this card as a submission to Stampington & co so I was thrilled to see it published in 400 More Ideas (formerly Catch-Up).  Being published is great fun (and always what I call a “pinch me” moment) and that fun is doubled when you share such happy creative moments with friends.  My lovely friend Darlene is published in this annual publication (Dar’s blog can be found HERE) and my lovely blogging friend, Marjie, whose blog is HERE.  It is an honour to be published alongside my talented friends.
The main stamp used is Crafty Individuals CI-325.
CI-325 was repeatedly stamped to form the background, it is actually a wonderful stamp for backgrounds.
cicardlynnemoncrieffStamping further elements such as the ledger stamp and postal cancellation whichI brought together with found paper and corrugated cardboard which I had applied walnut ink to (I use dissolved walnut crystals) and distressed.
DIGITAL CAMERAThis is an image from one of the Crafty Individual image books which was layered behind one of their frames which I’d painted with copper acrylic and distressed. A fragment of mica was added.DIGITAL CAMERAReturning to the main stamp I stamped it once more and cut out the car to add as an embellishment. DIGITAL CAMERACrafty Individuals recently released some wonderful new stamps and also a note to say there is a Crafty Individuals challenge underway, so if you are a fan of Crafty Individuals there’s lots to interest you at the moment.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this post.
Wishes
Lynne

    Dear Lynne,
    it is so gorgeous,-I love when you are creating such many layered pieces, with tiny and big 3-d stamps all over–the corrugated cardboard piece looks great there on the side, and adding mica alwayes gives an extra exiting experience .
    Beautiful art piece and stamps my dear friend.
    Hugs and sleep well –
    Dorthe,xx
