Our new challenge is up and running over with The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT and our theme this week is transport. I'm sure that many of us would like to get on a plane to escape this freezing January weather here in many parts of the USA but you could feature any type of transport to join in, just remember to use alcohol markers.
We are being sponsored by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff who has a fabulous shop on Etsy - Aurora Wings and she has generously offered a $10 gift certificate for one lucky winner at the end of the month - another reason to join in!
For my card I used a digi from my own shop, drawn by my very talented husband. He sells prints and does commission work through his own shop Sturgess Designs and gives me the line drawings to sell as digital stamps - sounds like a good deal to me :)
Anyway, as his birthday is fast approaching, I decided to make a card ready for that. We're both keen photographers and love to take snaps of rusty old trucks whenever we're out and about so I wanted to make a rusty pick-up the star of this card. I wasn't really sure how to colour rust but I picked up some Copics in browns, warm greys, yellows and oranges and started 'dotting'. Now some of you may wish for a more detailed explanation at this point but I'm sorry, that just isn't going to happen. In 'real life', I'm a very organised person with a pretty tidy house but when it comes to creating and my craft room, that goes completely out the window. For me, creativity comes from chaos!
So. after dotting away with my Copics, I fussy cut the truck and put it on a background of stamped cork with an inked-up piece of road map, some washi tape and a dymo tape sentiment. The self adhesive cork is 6" x 6" from DCWV and is supposed to be suitable for die cuts but I haven't yet tried it for that. After all that rambling, finally here's the card -
I would like to enter this into the challenges at Charisma Cardz , Art Impressions , 4 Krafty Girlz , Through the Craftroom Door , Cards Galore , Crafty Sentiments .
