The Old Pickup

Hi there! Today I'm sharing a card I created based on the most recent Tuesday Trigger photo over at the Moxie Fab World! Here's the inspiration photo:

LOVE LOVE LOVE this color combo! To me, this looks like a porch on an old country farmhouse. That, in turn, made me think of old fashioned pickup trucks (I mind works in mysterious ways *wink*). So, here's what I came up with:

That little pickup truck is part of the Cars and Trucks Stamp Set TR28 from DeNami Design---TOTAL CUTENESS! I stamped and colored it twice with Copic Sketch Markers, cut both images out, and popped them up for dimension. Then, I added some Crystal Lacquer to the body of the truck and some sparkle to the headlight with a Spica glitter pen! The embossed brick background is a new (to me) Tim Holtz embossing folder that I bought during my visit to Artsy (our new local stamp shop in Colorado)!

I hope you like my card for today and feel inspired to get inky!!! Remember to head on over to the Moxie Fab World for all of the Tuesday Trigger details and to check out what all of the talented participants have made!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
