Every so often I need a masculine birthday card. I don’t have a lot of masculine stamp sets, and most of the ones I have are wildlife or boating. I know not all guys are into that stuff, so I decided to go looking for inspiration for a card that does not have wildlife.
The truck in the retired Stampin’ Up! set Loads of Love was exactly what I needed. I got a bit of inspiration from Pinterest, and away I went. I also got to use my watercolor crayons. I LOVE THEM! I need to use them more often. I gently scribble the colors around inside the image, and then I take my Blender Pen to spread the color around. It is SO fun! 🙂
I am thinking of making a few more of these in Real Red. What other colors should I use for the truck? I was thinking Basic Black would be too much.
The Basic Black crayon is VERY dark and a very tiny bit goes a LONG ways!
