Vintage Car - Hobby House Vintage Challenge Midway Reminder

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today's post is to remind you all of that fabulous challenge for

as we are at our midway point

That theme again 

The prize
£25.00 (not including postage) to the winner

Now this is going to be a long post but then I think it needs it to allow you to see all aspects of this creation and all those gorgeous products on it, this little number was shown on Create and Craft and I was super thrilled, you can find a video link below to see the video clip,  but do also pop over to the challenge site to see the rest of the awesome inspiration for this challenge.

This creation started from an original template which was created by the wonderful Sandra, you can find this template here, although I have to let you know that I have altered the template in some areas and created other bits to add with the assistance of my fabulous husband Matt.

I will start with the bits that Matt made.  He made the front grill template, the lights, the white walls on the tyres, the little round side mirrors and the little window wipes :)

On this shot you can see those gorgeous 
Hobby House Sparklers for the headlamps
Hobby House Tiny Lady Cameo in pink
Hobby House Strings of pearl
and lots more

The rear side view
Here you can see that gorgeous steering wheel a button from Lols :)
and you can see the glass in the side mirrors, along with the rear lights.

Those Hobby House Products are:
Hobby House Large Pearl Brads
Hobby House Round Cameo pink
around the tyres - Hobby House Satin Ribbon

The centre of the tyres the
Hobby House plain silver brads
Hobby House Lace from in the shop
Hobby House Mulberry roses - Raspberry Truffle, Wedding Day and Peaches and Cream

The little embossed seats :)
and those
Hobby House Mulberry Cherry Blossom - Raspberry Truffle

The wheels are made from a recycled toilet roll and all the grey has been airbrushed with either Warm or Cool grey copics.

Photography for this item was done by the awesome Steve - thank you Steve awesome even the reflection on the front lights and the reflection on the ground just superb.

Now this car was showcased along with all these products on the June Create and Craft show and you can see the car section
