A Pick Up for Valentines Day

This truck is so much fun to stamp and cut out. It was one of those stamp sets that I "had to have" and then never used. It must have sat at least 6 months before I picked it up. I was browsing Kittie's gallery one day and was blown away by her images with this little truck. Well, all of her images actually! Anyway she inspired me to dust off this set and start inkin'. I decided that the foreground needed a little something extra and so I added the daises...not sure how I feel about them. I like them...but then I don't. I feel like the ribbon is a bit boring too, just having one of those days I guess. I will have to work on it and that's ok because I love using this little guy! The truck is watercolored with a waterbrush and markers, the hearts with Copics. After stamping the trees I pounced with evergreen to fill in and give it depth. The road was stipple with Walnut Stain and Tea Dye but then I decided to add a piece of brown cs which was torn and stippled. I also drew lines on the "road". I stippled Frost White and Faded Jeans on the sky for clouds.

Here's what I used:
Loads of Love, SU!, daisy by Morningstar Stamps
Colorbox pigment inks in Evergreen and Frost White, Ranger Distress inks in Walnut Stain and Tea Dye and Faded Jeans
Ribbon from Michaels
All cardstock by Bazzill and the brad from Target (a whole pkg for a buck!)

This card is soo cool! I love the way you did the background behind the trees. This may be a case(if you don't mind)!
