(my son loves the ocean)
It was so great seeing my brother and his family along with my parents again. Hoping it will become a tradition. :-).
Anyway, I've got a card to share today that I had started before I went on holidays but never got done. It was supposed to be for Festive Friday Christmas challenge but I just ran out of time. :-(. I missed a challenge and I might miss the next one if I don't get a chance to make anything today. I was doing so well too! Ah well, that's life. In any case, I wanted to share it with you all. Take a look...
So I used my Stampin' Up! truck stamp but masked out the baskets of apples in the truck bed and the "apples for sale" sign on the back. I coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers and then filled the bed of the truck with some dimensional snow. I added some snow to the ground as well to obscure the grass. I matted it on some red paper and attached it to my card base. I stamped my sentiment (Stampabilities) in black. I love how it turned out. I do want to mention that you need to be careful adding the snow near the coloured parts. The marker will tend to bleed into the snow, especially the red. I just added more over top after it dried to cover any bleeding. :-)
I'd like to take a moment to welcome a new follower too. A warm welcome to Karen M. of Made By Meadie. She's from Tasmania, Australia and has been blogging since 2011. She is a gifted card artist has made some truly beautiful cards. You should definitely stop by her blog for a visit. :-)
Well, I think that's all for now. Hope you have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!
