Little Car in The Big Woods
My contribution to Daring Card Makers' challenge on photo finish.
Car - a vintage Opel Kapitän - via Rein, so this one is taking part in her Monday Morning Share challenge as well!
clicks for big!
Background was first gessoed in with a spatula on a shiny 4-color postcard. After it had dried, it was painted over with blue water color, which let the gesso lines show through as texture. Left corner was further rubbed in with dark brown gel paint, then painted twice over with water colors, one time with purple, then with Prussian blue. All elements are glued on - a vintage Austro-Hungarian map, a fir branch from an oldish abc book, a bird, Rein's car. The letters are rub-ons (my first! yay).
