Monster Trucks

Well this was a fun card to do - lots of different bit and bobs all added in to come up with something quite different!

To start off with, the brown backing paper started life as a paper bag. The big buttons on the other hand were off an old coat. The image is a Bugaboo coloured with Promarkers & the finishing touches were made with twine & glaze on the window & flame.


This one was made for a number of challenges including;

Craft Your Days Away - Distressing
Passion For Promarkers - Recycle something - Brown paper bag & coat buttons
Papertake - Glitter or Glaze - I chose glaze for the flame & glass Jx
