Have you ever struggled with a card or a LO? I mean REALLY struggled? Spent way too much time on it, made way too much of a mess creating it, changed your mind about different elements of it many times, and still not happy with it when it's completed? This card was a challenge for me.
This card is SO out of my comfort zone. I don't make many manly cards or even serious cards. I make cutesy and fun cards. I needed to make a man's birthday card for someone I really don't know well and have only met a few times. I found this idea in a Papercrafts magazine and scrapjacked it. I loved the card in the magazine but am not thrilled with my version of it. The biggest challenge I think was coloring the car. I must have colored the silly thing 4 or 5 times and still hate it. I thought throwing a bunch of Glossy Accents on it would make the coloring look better. Hmm, don't think it worked. Copics didn't give me the weathered/older look I wanted, my Prisma's failed me miserably so I ended up using chalk. Well chalk and Glossy Accents.
Next year, the recipient is getting a card made with a Greeting Farm Anya. ;o)
