My framed project combines both Digital and Handmade crafting. I found a Vintage map online which I printed out first and distress inked, then crumpled up and arranged it to look old and creased. The car silhouette image was initially created in CAP2 software, by importing the map as a picture and using a stencil to get the car shape. Then printed and mounted onto card, which I cut out and also used distress inks to age it. I used a combination of Tim Holtz inks including, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain. The background I created using images from two kits called Indian Dreams and Pin Up Sweethearts from Daisytrail. Lots of blending and effects for this. I wanted to portray a journey the lady might go on. I then mounted and arranged everything to get a 3D look to complete before framing.
