Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s winter break already! I clearly got nothing done as it’s been one thing after the next, and being sick on top of it all, its been a LONG winter, I am sooo ready to get past this chapter of life LOL.
Being sick means staying home as lot, resulting in reading A LOT! I might come on here sometime to share my 2022 reads, I have big plans to finish 3 books in the next 2 weeks to meet my year goal, let’s see how that goes! But what I have been reading a lot of it the little blue truck and his adventures! My little one loves anything that moves, so this card is inspired by his antics!
To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the image of the truck from the Holiday Haul Stamp Set. As I mentioned my coloring was inspired by the “Little Blue Truck”, once I was done coloring, I die cut it using the coordinating Holiday Haul Die Set. The copic colors I used are shown below.
I created the background of the card, with multiple layers of ink blenidng and stenciling! For the first later, I used shades of grey-blue to create a winter evening sky, next I ink blended the line of trees using the Christmas Tree Line Stencil, along with 2 shades of green ink and brown for the stumps. My last layer was done using the Petite Snow Stencil, and texture paste.
Only after the white texture paste dried, did I notice that I hadn’t stamped a sentiment nor left space for one! So I quickly cut a hill from some scrap paper, inked it up lightly with some grey ink, and stamped a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set. Once the texture paste dried, I finished off the card by adding the sentiment strip and the colored image of the truck.
