Still Crusin'

Hello there!

{Edit to add this card was selected as the winner at Hiding in My Craft Room on 5/30/18 I am very humbled thank you}

Hope the start of your week is going well!

As I mentioned yesterday, we have had some yucky weather, so I dusted off a lot of my crafting supplies and got busy! I decided with Father's Day around the corner I could make a dreaded man card. (DMC) They always are challenging for me. :-)))

 I started with a piece of black cardstock and pieced together some patterned papers attaching to the card front. I cut a banner and added to the left side of the card. I stamped my focal image from Crafty Secrets Classic Cars onto white cardstock and used a Spellbinder die to cut it out. I used Prima Watercolor pencils on the image itself. I layered the image inside a Top Note Die and placed the layers in the middle.
Lastly, I added some buttons for further embellishing and a license plate embellie from Tim Holtz.

I am joining in at Hiding in My Craft Room - Masculine/Father's Day, Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes, D. L. Art - May Linky, A Gem of a Challenge - It's a Man's World, The Male Room - Cars, Brown Sugar Challenge Blog - Masculine or Father's Day, International Art and Soul - All About Boys or Men.

I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!
