A Proper Vintage Gentleman

Hello and happy Tuesday! I just finished this page I made for my Dad, of his Dad with his 1937 Studebaker. I'll be giving it to him this Sunday for Father's Day.

 This is also my entry for the Graphic 45 challenge at Scrapbook.com. I used one of their older lines, "A proper gentleman collection", which I've been hoarding ever since it came out. It felt good to finally use some of it!I started by masking the edges with black soot distress ink and my mini gears template from The Crafter's Workshop. I used some sandpaper at an angle to distress the black Core'dination's cardstock.

I did a lot of fussy cutting on this page, including the key, which was stamped and embossed first.

I love this chipboard vintage car, which I got as a RAK from Funtoolas! Thanks Cindy! I inked it first and then used distress embossing powder on it. I  used a clear transparency, which I inked with butterscotch alcohol ink, to make the windows. I made the red flower using my Tattered and Torn Flower Tutorial.

The wood tag was also a RAK that I got a long time ago from (puppet). Thanks Krista! I used antique linen reinker to distress it, along with a touch of black soot Distress Ink. And I can't forget Anna for giving me some awesome stamps, one of which I used for the photo corner. I embossed it using aged mahogany Distress Embossing Powder. So thank you Anna!!
And thank YOU for stopping by!
