Vintage car

Or veteran car - I know there are definitions of veteran, vintage and classic among car enthusiasts, but not being a petrol head they are all vintage to me!

I made the background using red and black brushos, sprinkled over the paper and spritzed with water, then stamped the image and "tyre marks" on it using a very old Linda Luckin set (no longer available) and coloured it with Promarkers and a silver gel pen.
I used Gummiapan stitched squares dies to cut the layers and added tiny brads to the corners of the red and black layers.

I am sharing this with

The Male Room - school/college colours (I did my degree at Somerville College, Oxford, where the colours are red and black. But I can be allowed the yellow because my husband was across the road at St Johns College where the colours were red, black and yellow - and we swapped scarves!).

Brilliant masculine design, the tyre tracks are perfect. I don't now the difference between veteran/vintage/classic cars either. LOL! xx
