Baby you can drive my card

This is my ATC for Think Monday, Think ATC. The theme this week is cars.
The girl is a magazine picture that is a paint-over. I dry brushed lightly over the picture with gesso and drew over it with a black pen and then water colored her. Then I masked over her and stamped in the background.
I added her snazzy little pink Mercedes and then I added the title to a Beatle's song that has been in my head since I hear the theme was cars and highlighted it with a white pen.
Beep! Beep!

Hello Nancy - me again. Cigarette cards were given out during the war years and before, one in each packet of ciggies - and now, some of the original ones are worth quite a bit of money, these are copies, and are perfect for ATC's or cards, I have film stars, butterflies, flowers, and travel ones ...
