ThanksDAD

Hello Again!

For today I am playing along with Stampin' Royalty. Their challenge is to create a masculine card that corresponds with an inspiration photo. Here is my take on the challenge, enjoy!


I love these old Thunderbirds.
Cars back then were considered art, and the idealism is reflected in these cars.
These were the days of leaded fuel, chrome bumpers, steel bodies with no crumple zones, and when crusin' down main street was the thing to do.


I wanted to use the popular colors of the time.
The colors are then reflected on the sentiment.

I enjoy seeing all the cars lined up. It looks like they are on the lot ready to be purchased.
I stamped each car, colored them, and then fussy cut.
I really like this design on kraft paper, it seems to allow the colors to pop.


Challenges Entered:


When I was a girl I remember my dad coming home smelling like... well... bodyshop! I don't know if any of you have smelled a bodyshop before, but it has a very distinctive smell. That is what dad smelled like everyday after work- whether he worked on cars or not. The body shop smell clung onto him like little leeches. Still to this day when I visit a bodyshop and catch a whiff of paint, I am sent right back to those days with my dad. So this card is for you dad. I certainly do miss you.

Funny, I actually have to go to a shop soon. My front bumper has gotten well 'bumped'. 

Well that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

What a great card! I never know what to do for men's cards and this is a brilliant idea.
