Distressed Classic Car
Do not attempt to adjust your monitor. There really isn't any coloring on this card. Gasp!
I made this card to practice distressing with a sponge, as I am taking an online class on sponging backgrounds from the extremely talented Kim Teasdale via My Creative Classroom. I am woefully behind on the assignments right now, but I'm certain I will catch up by the end of the week.
The car image is some blog candy I won a couple years ago from Laura at Whirlpool of Imagination. Thanks again, Laura! The image is from River City Rubber Works. I stamped it onto Georgia Pacific cardstock with Marvy dye black ink. I sponged the panel using a variety of browns such as Distressed Ink Old Paper, Bantook Charcoal Gray (it looks brown!), and Sea Shells Peach Bellini. The sentiment was taken off a portion of Stamps Happen rubberstamp using a Memento Ink pen. I randomly stamped a Magenta background stamp on one of the panels using the Bantook Charcoal Gray. Various patterned paper and black cardstock were also to create this card, along with brown brads.
Thanks for looking. More of my "learning" will be posted during the week.
