A Red Jeep


Isn't this jeep fun? My BIL LOVES jeeps and RED!!! So, when I saw this image from Incredible Stamps, of course I had to get it....and color it red with my Copics... LOL I then added some foliage with a wonderfully versatile Evergreen Branch by Inkadinkado. I think it adds a bit of warmth to the scene.

Now, I have to tell you about one of my new favoritest (that so needs to be a word :) sets by Tim Holtz. It's called Slight Alterations, and it's fabulous for creating bg's and dirtying up an image. I inked up the sanded image with Latte (Adirondack Dye Ink), stamped it off, and then stamped it directly over the image to give it a slight grunge look. I ended up covering most of the bg, but I used the other two images with Latte and Slate (Adirondack), to dirty it up a bit.

The sentiment was created by using the JustRite set Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers (yeah, I know.....I use that set a lot....*grin*), and the border was made with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. Finally, I ink distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink). btw....the card is 4" x 4".

Don't forget...Stamper's Dream has some awesome Sales and Specials found HERE.

Thanks for stopping in today!!
Hope you have a fantabulous weekend!!!
Happy Stamping!!

That's a great masculine card, you're BIL should really enjoy it! I love the new Alterations stuff Tim Holtz has come out with and there's more new stuff soon, I guess. Anyway, the finished work is terrific.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
