My inspiration began with a wooden arch, plenty of space to showcase all the images on this fabulous plate. I gave the wood a coat of gesso and then applied a light coat of vintage photo Distress Stain, I did not want my background to appear too dark. My creation began with the fabulous number plate that my dear blogging friend and fellow DT member Suzz sent to me, I love it. I coloured the plate with ginger alcohol ink and added faux screw brads to each corner. I then stamped the fabulous car image, a wonderful symbol of the roaring twenties onto white card and coloured with vintage photo Distress Ink. Mini sprocket gears have been added to each wheel for a little dimension along with the text "The Great Gatsby" to some tape (also sent to me by Suzz, thank you) again sponging a little with vintage photo ink. I found some mini alphabets in my goodies and added GATSBY to the body of the car.
The back has also been given a vintage feel adding more embellishments to complete my collaged piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
