MMSC #62 Little red corvette

And honey, I say Little Red Corvette
Baby, U're much 2 fast (Oh)
Little Red Corvette
U need a love that's gonna last
~Prince ~

This card is made of paper from the Paper Temptress. I have used the the Black velvet and Gold sparkle. I am not sure how to explain the sensation of working with this paper. My photos can never really do this justice.
Paper is a touch an feel thing to me so ordering online was difficult, but BOY I am happy that I did. The Black velvet paper is the most fantastic paper I have ever touched. It is soft and smooth. You can emboss it, and you can distress it. It distresses beautifully! It is just an amazing paper.
The Gold Sparkle is the most beautiful paper you will ever find. This is the kind of paper you would want to buy loads of to make sure you never run out! It really sparkles! Make sure you have loads of this for your christmascards!

The ribbon is also from the Paper Temptress. She has some amazing ribbons over there!

I have used stamps from Layers of Colors, All Night Media and Great Impression. The swirl over the car has been embossed with gold embossingpowder.

My FAB car is from Doodles Palace. These cars did not come with a metallic paint, but I took some artistic freedom there ;o) You want to come for a ride with me?

Gunn, you always ROCK the Midnight Madness Challenges with your own special flair. You took The Paper Temtress card stock and made it magical. My gosh, I wish I could see and feel that black velvet in person and the sparkly gold card stock. . Your image is amazing, love the gold swirl, pearls, flower and embossed gold swirl. You did a dynamite job!!


Priscilla said...

Hi Gunn, well first let me say, you never disappoint do you? I love your car and your gold embossing is so perfect. All your accents go perfect with the image. Your post is wonderful and you never miss a beat with all the info you share. Thank you for that. The sponsors I am sure are thrilled. Thanks for being such a wonderful DT member and for all that you do. You are amazing.

Gunn, What an AWESOME card!! That car is wonderful. Have you ever ridden in one?? I have, I had a friend one time who had one in red like this and another friend who had one in silver. They were the dream car when I was young. (The Thunderbird was HOT also!!) Great job with all the beautiful papers and that image.
