CQC135 Antiqued Truck

Hi Stampers!

It has been another very busy week and I finally had a chance to relax and stamp a card.   I decided to use the colors from the CQC135 ColourQ Challenge (love this weekly challenge!)to create a CAS (Clean and Simple) masculine card.   If you have the time, visit their site to see all of the Design Team projects as well as all of the different entries- always an inspiration! 

To create this card:

On Whisper White cardstock, use sticky notes to create a mask.  Stamp the truck image with  Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  

Once the embossing has cooled, color with Stampin’ Write markers (I used the challenge colors- Pool Party, Ruby Red, So Saffron) and apply Early Espresso ink with a Sponge Dauber to “antique” the image. 

 It was difficult to photograph this image- in real life it had a wonderful aged appearance - the background has a rich sepia tone to it :-)

Mount onto Early Espresso cardstock and again onto the embossed panel of Whisper White.  Add the sentiment with the Hemp Twine (retired) to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Countryside, Petite Pairs

Ink: Versamark™, Early Espresso, Stampin’ Write Markers- Pool Party, So Saffron, Ruby Red (retired)

Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (retired), Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder (retired), Hemp Twine (retired), Antique Copper Hardware (retired)

Thanks again for stopping by to visit- I hope you have a wonderful week and find some time to play with paper!
