toot toot !!

stamps: positively chevrons from stamping up!, toot toot and for him sentiments from LOTV 
inks: promarkers, tim holtz distress ink pads and memento (tuxedo black)
other: 6x6 card blank, craftworks cardstock, oval punch from stampin up!, sizzix oval die cut shape and twine
I made this nice, bright birthday card for my granddad, as he loves cars. I thought this LOTV image would be perfect for him. I coloured it with promarkers and coordinated the background in distress inks. the backing paper was inked and then stamped with the chevrons in the second shade of green. following the sketch, I added a message in an oval punch and 3 strands of twine across the backing paper. the ovals and card were edged in brown distress to stand out. the twine was fixed behind the chevron paper for a neat finish, with the topper stuck down using foam pads. I think the bold pattern of the backing paper and the colours work well together for a fun, masculine feel.
