I ventured into very new to me crafting waters with this card:
I decided to create a card that would capture recent road trip adventure my husband and I took....We were actually driving on this historic Route 66 on our way to Texas :)
Route 66 sign is a Cricut Nifty Fifties Cartridge cutout covered with clear crackle paint and then distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I used 3 different size heavy cardstock pieces and covered both sides of each with different patterned cardstock. Majority of cardstock I used for this project is from Tim Holtz "Lost and Found" Stash.
I punched holes and threaded jute string to create a little "book". Then I decorated each page with different banners, gears, movie ticket cutouts and so forth.
I created this "Sleepy Motel" sign using Cricut Nifty Fifties Cartridge and then added some clear crackle paint to give it rustic look. After the paint dried I sponged it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.
The gears are coated with black and gold embossing powder.
I added some more banners and a clock charm to this page...
...and the last page...
I am entering this book card into following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #233 with inspiration photo
The Mixed Media Card Challenge #4 "Vintage"
Scrapclug Kiev Quest#67 "Extreme"
