Classic Car Watercolor Card

This one was made with my hubs in mind.
Love the classic car, which to me looks like a 1957 Chevy.


Front sentiment:  Authentic.  It is often the bend in the road that makes life worth the drive.


Inside sentiment:  Enjoy the ride.

I needed to catch up on on all the male birthday cards for family (lots of guys in the fam).  That's the reason for my recent masculine projects.
An outdoor scene was what I was going for. The chrome actually shines but hard to see in the pics.
I think I pulled it off in watercolor with Unity's Authentic Man set.

Inspiration:

Unity Stamp Co. Sketch Challenge 26 and Friends With Flair.

Runway Inspired Challenge ric#80 - Nonoo
Love this watercolor look and that pop of bright orange / red. 
For my take, I incorporated the colors and watercolor style for my husband's card.

Thanks for visiting. Your comments make my day.
