CQC135 Antiqued Truck
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!
