Digi Doodle GDT #27 - 3D

Well, this is my last card for Digi Doodle as GDT for September. I hope the ladies of DDSB have enjoyed me playing along for the past 5 weeks. The theme for this particular challenge as you can see from the title, is to have some form of dimension to the card and I have chosen to use silicone glue to decoupage the image of ‘Boy and Vintage 1st Car’.

He looks a little distracted doesn’t he? LOL. Fab car though isn’t it? You can imagine getting a car like that for Christmas and itching to go outside to play….but then realise it is pouring with rain and all you can do is sit there in the house, feet poised on the pedals ….and hope! Then your mum calls for you to get out of the car as you will leave marks in the carpet…. LOL.

I have used boy-like papers, (well, they are blue!!! LOL), hopefully in keeping with the era that this young chap comes from, and he just has to have of course, a bright red car. Shoes though are the obligatory ‘tan’ (did they ever come in other colours?). All coloured with Promarkers, I brought the ‘wing’ of the car forward for my dimensional element, using a slightly smaller amount of silicone glue towards the back of the car compared to the amount at the front so that it lies closer to the background towards the back than it does at the front. I hope you understand what I mean. Neither did I want to give it too many layers as it can sometimes look odd and disproportionate, especially from the side-view. Not to mention the cost of postage these days for anything other than pancake-flat mail!!!!

I have enjoyed my time as GDT, and will no doubt play along with some of the challenges in the future. Right, I shall bid you all ‘adieu’. Hope you all like today’s efforts enough to leave a comment as you go along and I thank you for them in anticipation.
