The car is from Nifty Fifties, which was one of the cartridges I knew I "had" to have when I first saw it. I'm sure I've said it before, but I belong in the 50s. I would've loved living during that time period! I cut it out at 2.75 inches if I remember correctly. I know I wasn't that original because I used the colors that are shown in the handbook. It was only after I had it all cut out that I thought of Grease mainly because I was searching for a sentiment and came across "Summer Lovin" in Pink by Design's "Simply Everything" set!
It all fell in place after I picked the sentiment. I thought of the scene, and used a random cloud shape cut out of scrap paper, some random foam, and Distress Ink in Broken China to make the clouds in the background.
After I took the pictures, I actually tried Glossy Accents for the first time for the windshield. WOW, that stuff is amazing! I wasn't sure if I was going to mess up the card, but it came out pretty nice. The silly thiing that I did was leave the black steering wheel uncovered. Haha, in most cars I've seen, the steering wheel is also behind the windshield, so that should've been covered too! I did fix it later on, but it wasn't as smooth. Now I know for next time!
