Plato's Jalopy

Here's a tag made for Hels and her Sunday Stamper Challenge week 227 which has the theme of METAL.

Well I had no idea what to make until I found some metal charms in town this morning.....when I saw the chequered flags, I knew it would be motor racing themed.

The background is Distress Inks - mopped up Mowed Lawn spritzed with Bundled Sage  and then Pine Needles blended through a Tando Creative Distorted Harlequin Mask to represent tyre tracks. Unfortunately I don't have any racing car stamps so used Tim Holtz's Jalopies inked with Archival.  Do you think Jason Plato would be happy in his blue car number 99??   It's just finished with some chequered ribbon, the chequered flag metal charm and Hels's favourite saying - Go Plato Go! 

Guess we'll be glued to the TV on Sunday then - motor racing is an accepted sport in our house!!  Thanks for looking.


  1. What a brilliant tag Elaine, love that you put the numbers on the jalopies - Hels will love this for sure! Great idea and beautifully executed. Crafty hugs, Anne x

    Unfortunately it is football, then motor racing, then cycling at our house, but I get lots of time to craft so it is not so bad after all!

  2. Totally LOVE it... am sure JP would too! We will actually be at Brands Hatch... I know! How cold will that be!! Hoping it doesn't rain lol Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x
