Loads of Love Harvest


Hi there!  I hate when the weekend comes to a close!  I've been putting off some school work I have to do to create this card for the Featured Stamper this week on SCS.  Sometimes ya just gotta create!

I'm so sorry for the poor photo!!
I used the hill die cuts from Papertrey Ink as well as their cloud die.  I stamped the truck from Loads of Love (SU retired) onto orange polka dot paper and cut it out.  I cut away all parts I didn't want to be orange (bumpers, windows).  I stamped another truck on white and cut it out as well. I cut part of the truck cab off to create a half open window.  I left the orange tires on and just colored the tires in with black marker.  I colored the window and bumpers with BG10 and shaded the truck with YR27 and just a little E08.  I added some sparkle with a spica silver pen-to the bumpers, door handle and tires.  It doesn't show in my photos.

The truck and clouds are raised on dimensionals.  The scene piece is mounted on soft suede and then onto kraft cardstock.  Edges of pieces are shaded with the next darker shade for a little dimension.  When I finished the card I wished I had at least sewn on the edges.  It has the look of a quilt to me.

Thanks for visiting!! Cheryl

Love that truck! Wouldn't it be great to have an actual one like it? Very cute card! Love the hills you created too!

I'm still not done with correcting my essays. They will have to wait until tomorrow! Have a great week!
