I completed this layout a few weeks ago but life has got in the way - however in the nick of time I have managed to post it for the Kraft+ challenge  :)

This is a photo of our car now and our car when it was raced in the 1970's.

I started by applying gesso to the areas that I was going to colour.  I then applied Kaisercraft and The Crafters Workshop stencils with texture paste. I have used Dylusions Paint - Lemon Zest, Tattered Angels Glimmer mist - Marigold, Lindy Stamp Gang - Yellow Roses of Texas.  I have also used embossing powder - Lindy Stamp Gang - Scotch Breem Yellow with a Kaisercraft stamp.

I have used a Tim Holtz die cut - gadget gears and coated them with black paint and clear embossing powder.   Onto these I have added Steampunk gears and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology arrow.

I have applied washi tape behind the photos and a kaisercraft clear stamp with the embossing powder and black ink

Thanks for stopping by and until next time Happy Crafting :)
