In the back of my mind, I've been fermenting an idea for a card for my husband for Father's Day. Over the last several months, I've seen several cards using maps, and with that idea in mind, I just had to see what I could come up with. The other day an overwhelming urge drove me to get started (even though my room's still a mess...LOL). After much "that's good" and "no, not good" attempts, here it is.
Father's Day card...June 17, 2012
I had blues and browns in mind and some sort of vintage car, depicting traveling and a journey. Internet surfing brought me this little 1930 Austin in just the right color, and I was on my way. I only had two papers with maps and neither would work...so again to my computer. I found several maps and passport stamps and downloaded them; tweaking their colors to get just what I wanted, even sponge daubed Canada...it was too white! (I really liked the shades of blues on an Antarctica map, but didn't see John traveling there, so had to discard that thought...but, I really like the colors...oh well...another day!) LOL
And here is the finished inside...
