Men /Boys

Good morning. It's a new month and that means a new topic at Make My Monday. This month Caz is the lead DT member and she has chosen Men and Boys to be the overriding theme for the month, this first week  Caz would like to see some WHEELS on your projects.
Also this month MMM is being sponsored by
Marianne Designs
with this fabulous prize

 There are some wonderful inspiration from the DT pop across and take a look
Here's mine.

I used some of the images from this free digital download picture of cars from the The Graphics Fairy...
I printed onto light weight card then chose four  .. used only three in the end lol
I used a black Promarker around the edges and mounted onto  slightly larger card.
 The images were then mounted with sticky pads onto black card stock that had been embossed. The car on the left is raised a little higher. The sentiment is from a Darkroom Door set of stamps called, funnily enough, Enjoy Life


This shows the lovely deep embossing from a TH Sizzix Alteration die, Retro Circles plus  a screw type brad in the centre of a circle...

I covered the the black of the cars with Diamond Glaze 
It was tricky getting it just where I wanted it to be :o)
The whole thing was then mounted onto whitecardstock then adhered to a 15cmx15cm  black half fold card.

Looking forward to seeing your WHEELS!
have a good week

A great new topic for this month - these cars are brilliant for a man card and I know what you mean about getting the glaze just where you want it - not so easy.
