Motoring Ahead, His heart so full of glee

I like to switch it up every once in awhile and do a manly piece. It allows me to step away from the all the pink fluff and glitter. LOL. Don't worry, I have a charming pink creation and a surprise tomorrow to share with you. Stay Tuned.  So when Fashionable Stamping  had a challenge to "Make it a Guy thing.", I knew I had to enter it. They have such amazing Design team work there, it is very inspirational. Please do drop by. Val of Bastelmania-craftattack is the  Guest Designer at Just for Fun and her challenge is about guys too called Vintage Men .

This tag started with the stamped Model T and sign post as the focal points, then I had to find what to put around it. I spied a pic in a magazine of the old factory and after cutting it out, I added watercolor paint to fill in the missing pieces. The car was stamped, fussy cut out and painted. A little man's head was put in the window. I used black fabric paint for the dimension this time. The sign post was the same with Liquid Pearls, copper German scrap and the sentiment "His heart, it was so full of glee." The little tag came next with "Motoring Ahead" with some Distress brown paint, lots of watercolor paint and copper German scrap. It was attached with some copper wire.

Hope you are motoring ahead this week with your heart so full of glee.
take care, gerri
