Wax Fruit Company Just The Car


We have a new challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps that starts today!
Our theme is Father's Day and I have my card ready ahead of time.

I've had this digital image from Wax Fruit Company for awhile now, it's actually been minimized on a Publisher page on my computer screen ready to print the perfect size for this sketch.  How's that for a reminder that I REALLY want to use this image and sketch?!  

I'm really happy with the way my card turned out, I love this image and it is perfect for this sketch by Mary Williams too.  I have a feeling that this is one of those sketches that.... well you know!

I used Copic markers to color the image:  BG11, BG23, BG13, C0, C1, BG0000, BG10, YG11, R27, R46, R59, T3, T5, Y000.  I tried something new I learned from Jennifer at Dove Art Studios with the windows.  I used YG11, BG10 & BG0000 in that order to color the windows so they look transparent.  

The papers used are Via Vellum Basic Black, Hero Arts Layering CS Bayou, Neenah Pewter, Copic X Press It.  Three red brads from my hoarded supplies, I haven't used brads in ages!  The DAD is a stamp by CC Rubber Stamps dated 1996.

I hope you have time to play in our Father's Day themed challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps this week!

Love the card, Jan! I miss those turquoise-colored cars - wish someone would make them again. LOL Very cool technique to make the windows look transparent - who would think you would use color to get a transparent look?!

This is so great and the coloring's fabulous!! And hey, if you'd only made that station wagon two-tone with a white top, you'd have colored my mother's car. lol

I love both the window technique and the sketch, which is one I've never done and will have to try. I just bookmarked your page.
