From one old banger to another!

Posted by tracy watkiss at 10:21
Good morning it's Thursday again so that can mean only one thing,
It's Just inklined time again!
When I first saw this image it evoked so many memories for me,
when I was a little girl we had a neighbour we called uncle Bert,
both my grandads had died before I was born
so this old gent was like a grandad to me,
and this is the car he had ( or the un pimped version of it lol!)
he loved this car he would wash it every other day,
every spring he would repaint it and varnish the wood. Such lovely memories.
Then when my hubby saw me colouring the image, he said ooh!
An old Morris your old next door neighbour had one of those.
wow that is a cool stamp and would make a great tattoo!!!
The minds of men!!



Well the image is a digiimage available from Just Inklined http://www.justinklined.com/digi-packs/wacky-wheelz-digi-pack-morris 
(sorry having trouble with linky).
I really wanted to keep this card manly, with no frills or ruffles. 
I coloured with spectrum noir pens this time.
Used stamps away washables background papers 
distressed with distress ink pads, 
cut out 3 circles and embossed them in a
circular motion to make fake brads, 
added a die cut tag and hand wrote the sentiment.
