Reminisce...

Quick post today.
Have lots of art to create today and then its back to my other job tomorrow.
I just love this car from I Brake For Stamps. Looking at it now, I should have made this card into a Father's Day one. I guess I need to make another now. I know my dh would love it for Father's Day! The car and the compass thingie (can't remember the correct name for it now lol) are both from IBFS. The car is stamped and embossed and then colored with Distress Inks. I did the 'reminisce' with a traditional label maker and a strip of cardstock, rather than the tape that you normally use with it. Then, I lightly rubbed white ink over the raised letters to make them pop. The photo corners are done by inking with Versamark and then embossing with Distress EP in Vintage Photo. I thought it really makes them look rusty to match the key.
Thanks so much to all of you who stop by, take the time to comment and follow my blog. You have no idea how much it means to me to know you enjoy my creations!!
