Best 4x4 Dad by far


Sketch from Tuesday Morning sketches

Good day

I've started this card a bit in the middle. I saw the challenge at Craft your passion for chevrons and I really do not have any chevron papers in my stack. With my usual stop, out of curiosity, at a craft shop I found this paper that is called Outdoor tracks from Scrapsheet. Immediately it triggered my creativity. I'm married to a husband that loves the outdoors, to do some 4x4 routes is his escape to sanity. Unfortunately I do not have a 4x4 image, but I have found this Pick-up image from Beyond the Fringed. Carmen draw some very interesting digis from time to time. A bit out of the normal images. Then I saw the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches, which I'm entering the first time, and thought this will make the recipe for the card. I've just turned it a bit. Found a sticker for the 4x4 and used some clear heat embossing on the sides and on the lights, to make it stand out. Coloured the windows with a silver and added some grey brads on the wheels. Then I distressed it with chestnut brown to give it a bit of muddy look. The corner ric rac brads was in blue and then I've just sprayed it with some bronze paint, to fit the colour scheme.The twine I've digged out of my stash.
