For The Boys
I chose to stay on the vintage theme this week and chose Teri's image Vintage Norton Bike and the Cog and Chain Border to compliment it.
The image itself is so detailed, not much colouring is needed. I did, however, paint some distress ink on it to highlight some of the key areas.
Torn edges and plenty of distress inks to further enhance that olde look.
Instead of embossing the core-dinations card base, I chose to use tyres marks. A new stamp from Visible Image. This was then attached to a piece of DP from the HOTP steampunk paper pack but not before attaching a piece of ribbon from stash threaded through a wooden cog from Crafty Emblies then adding a couple of their word plaques.
The little golden "headlight" is taken from some broken jewellery picked up in a charity shop and the centre filled with glossy accents.
So peeps - your turn. Make "One For the Boys" and come over and show us by linking your project up on the Delicious Doodles Challenge blog. You never know - you might win and get the opportunity to choose 5 images from the shop.
