We have a new challenge at The Male Room, vintage. So many options with this one but I decided to go with motorsport. You may have noticed a gap on the top right of the card, there will be a greeting added when I need to use it, something in dark green I think.
Having watched a few You-Tube videos I decided it was high time I tried making a mould. Now I didn't want to use a huge tube of sealant or anything that smelt so bad I'd be banished to the shed, what could I use.....Stix2 Silicone Glue. It has a faint smell but nothing nasty and comes in a handy tube, I got six moulds about 1.5 inches round from one tube.
The small pictures on the tag are all free images from the internet distressed with ink and crackle stamps. The tag itself is Kraft card also distressed with inks, the cotton ribbon is also stained with ink.
The card blank is covered with a small sheet of checkered paper, the edges distressed with black. On to this layer I stuck a die cut laurel wreath and a die cut trophy. The tag is mounted on foam pads over the wreath and trophy.
It always makes me smile when I see drivers of this era, they wore white overalls when the sport was probably at its dirtiest, their faces filthy, the only clean area around their eyes where their goggles had been.
The Male Room challenge runs for two weeks so please join us with your masculine projects with a vintage theme.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
