Darkroom Door ~ Classic Cars Vol.2

Hi guys!!
Darkroom Door has some great new stamps that were released in  January.  I
had the opportunity to create with some of the newly released products.
First up is Classic Cars Vol.2 ~
Classic Cars Vol.2

Such a cool set !!! Great for the men in your life and car lovers.

1. Using the Sunshine Background Stamp with grey cardstock, stamp the image using black ink.
2. Adhere a tag to the center of the card front.
3. Stamp the front facing car on white cardstock. Color in the head lights to match color of trim on the tag. I used watercolors to achieve this look.
4. Trim out to a rectangle shape.
5. Adhere to card front. Center the rectangle over the tag.
6. Using the Large Mesh stencil apply random spots on card front.  
7. Add circle sticker (had in my stash).  Mat the card front to beige cardstock and then again on black cardstock.
8. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock with black ink.
9. Trim apart and shade each section with black ink.
10. Add to card front using dimensional foam squares.
11. Speckle with white ink.
12. Adhere to folded white card base.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Classic Cars Vol.2 Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Sunshine Background Stamp
Darkroom Door Large Mesh Stencil
Archival Ink: Jet Black

1. Start with a grey piece of cardstock for your card front.  
2. Stamp the Grid Background Stamp on the grey cardstock with Distress Oxide Ink (Black Soot).
3. Using a spray bottle of water mist the front of the card. The ink will oxidize and create a distressed look. Dab off extra water. Dry with heat tool.
4. Stamp the car (front side view) stamp on card front.
5. Stamp numbers (from Vintage Office) in left top corner of card with Black ink.
6  Stamp the car (side view) on grey cardstock with black ink.
7. Trim out three sides and gently tear off bottom side.
8. Mat on beige cardstock. Repeat the tearing technique on the beige cardstock also.
9. Adhere to card front.
10. Mat the card front on beige cardstock and then black cardstock.
11. Then add to a folded white card base.
12. Speckle card front with white ink.
13. Stamp sentiment on beige card stock and trim out.
14. Shade with black ink and add to card front.
