Bits and Bobs #11

Hi and welcome to my blog! I am showing another bits and bobs card today. Many years ago in my local stamp club we made faux leather backgrounds using wet card stock, background stamps, inks and Modge Podge. I made quite a few large sheets and I still had some left! I stumbled upon these in an old file folder. I used a piece for the background of this card.

I found this vintage car image from Sparkle N Sprinkle in my image stash. I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and a silver metallic pen and cut it out using the Spellbinders Small Circles die. The strip of paper across the card came from some old packaging. The gears and cord also came from my stash of embellishments. I am hoping to use up a lot of my old stuff this year!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Really great, April! I love the combo of that old style card stamp with your faux leather! The gear is a really nice detail that made me smile. TFS!

Love the vintage car image with that beautiful background you made.
You and I are both trying to use our stash!
I am currently adding the final embellishments to a couple of boxes of card kits I made up a few years ago. The basic
s are already kitted...just have to add the ribbon and fancy embellies.diecuts.o.
