Guess the Car Giveaway!!!!

Here is the block print that I made for my Mother In-Law for Mothers day. It's of her favorite car, one that she used to own and always relied on. She speaks of it with reverence. :-) I've heard her talk about it enough that I thought, "Why not make a car print?"
 Why not indeed. It turns out I don't have any woodworking tools for making wood block prints. I had thought about lineoleum....but I wanted to use materials that I had around. I found a piece of plywood and an exacto knife. I sketched a design based off from some images I found online and then started scratching away the negative space. The plywood was really handy....all the different layers made it pretty easy for separating. I was expecting it to be quite a process to do this project with the right tools....but, it turned out that I had what I needed. I love the way it turned out. :-) 
I found the frame at Goodwill (where else?!?!) and painted a layer of acrylic Hydrangea paint on it. 
 Before it was fully dry I rubbed it off in spots to give it that aged look.  The background behind the painting is a polyester fabric that I just tacked onto some matting.

So, here's the deal. I made quite a few prints and I've never done a, why not?? I'm going to make it a little funky, though.
