And here's how my card came together. I hope you like it.
I added little pieces of left over chipboard, to the back of the die-cut window. I only added it to the middlest piece like in the photo.
I always save the negative of the DA chippies. They are great to use on whatever needs to be lifted.
I took one of the flowers, that came in the kit, apart and cut the roset to get to use the beautiful sheer ribbon. I trimmed off the glued edge and then you are left with 2 sizes of ribbon. I glued the biggest right under my first layer.
And the other one right over the top layer. I used Beacon's Fabri-Tac to glue the ribbon down, because it dries totally clear. Then I took 2 of the pearl spray thingies and, (using my glue gun) glued them down at one end. twisted them around eachother, and gluing them down, little by little, till I reached the other end.
So I added some Puffy Paint. When I heatsetted it, the embossing powder on the little CB, melted too ofcourse. I loved the shimmer the embossing powder gave, before heat setting, but I love the result even more after heating. And now, by adding this tiny detail………………………..
Here are some close ups:

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."January 23, 2014 at 4:53 pm #229391
