Classic Car Canvas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I am sharing one of my projects I created on Saturday, I had so much fun creating this.

The story behind this is that my Dad loves classic cards in particular the Lagonda (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car) so I wanted to create this canvas just for him.

This is a 10 x 10 canvas which I have embossed card using Cogs embossing folder, tore them up and adhered to canvas which was first coated with PVA. Once card was down I coated with Black Gesso.
I then arranged all the metal embellishments then gave it another coat of Pebeo Black Gesso.

Once the Black Gesso was dry I then dry brushed white over the embossed areas which highlights the embossed background beautifully.

Finally using Pebeo High Viscosity Acrylics in Burnt Sienna and Iridescent gold dry brushed over the elements. Added the picture of the Lagonda and there you have my finished canvas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
