DSC # 90

Hi Everyone

It's time for a new challenge at

 Digitally Sweet Challenges

the Theme is 


sponsored by  Sparkle N Sprinkle

My DT image is Happy Car and I have to admit to loving this image, I decided after a few tries to go the Grunge route, but as I'm not a grunge type, I did it my way LOL.  

I used masks by Valentina Designs, Kimeric and Just Jamie for the patterned areas, I used Grunge Wall texture6 by p.szczepanski at deviantart for the background over orange, the car has an overlay of  rust03 by Anne Frost also at deviantart. For the chrome element on the car I used  rust07 also by Anne Frost.  I could go into a lot more detail of how I got to this result, but it would not interest a lot of you, so if anyone is interested then contact me and I'll try and explain.  The text is altered to appear to be written on an old wall.
this is the inside of my card  the road is a Yin Yang shape in PS
which I changed slightly to make the road. I also added a car shadow.
Here is the printed card. I added Glamour Dust to the chrome elements - well you have to have Sparkle don't you? I also added acetate into the windscreen. and layered the front area of the car. Do you like my made up number plate? 

I really enjoyed doing this card, sometimes cards or projects are done and you are pleased, other times they stand out, at least to me, this one stood out, probably because I loved the image and I used different ways of working in PS and learned more through the process as well.

I have no idea how you've done it but it looks fantastic.

This is great, Faith! The image matches the 'grungy' treatment so well! I hope you're getting used to retirement, it must seem very strange - but now you have time for yourself, and for crafting!

Take care!

love Mags B x
