Vintage car

Hi everyone, this is my first ever piece as a guest design team member with Craft Your Passion. The theme this week is 'Torn and Distressed edges'. One of our sponsors is Doodle Pantry and I've been given this lovely vintage car set of images to work with.

 I've printed out two different backing papers on a couple of different shades of brown paper and, as the challenge requires, the edges have all been torn and distressed with brown ink. I've coloured the image with promarkers and mounted both sentiments on foam pads.

We're also being sponsored this week by The Paper Shelter and Pizzazz Aplenty so I hope you'll come on over to Craft Your Passion and join us for this great challenge. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you create.

I would like to enter this in the following:-
Phindy's place - vintage 
Polka Doodles - distressing 
Papercrafting journey - vintage 
 Doodle Pantry - use a Doodle Pantry image

Happy crafting
Helen xx
