Today's card is one of five that I made for my September stamp a stacks. It's a nice CAS masculine card to make using the FSJ set Hit the Road. Who hasn't thought about taking a trip down Historic Route 66? My hubby and I would like to do it someday, that's for sure!
To make this card I stamped everything using the Black Licorice ink pad and colored in the truck with the reddest watercolor pencil in the Journey Color Splash set (I think it was the first one, but since I'm not home I can't check!) After I colored it in I used a Journey Blending Brush with the tip slightly damp. It doesn't take much water to watercolor it! After it was just about dry (paper still a little cool) I colored over it again to darken the truck. I have to say that I need to work on my photo taking skills because the truck is darker in person and doesn't have any streaks in it! I guess that's what the flash does, but the color is never as vibrant if I don't use it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
