Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #36


Hi everybody. I love how Elmo from Sesame Street says it. Hee. Elmo makes me smile.

This is my card for Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #36 hosted by Alex on Paper Craft Planet.
Alex's colors are:
Black
Red
Yellow
White as neutral
Alex' card is so fun and cute! You've got to check it out!

I chose these new releases CHEVY TRUCK 1956 and COOL RIDE from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

I made this card for my brother for his upcoming birthday. He had a black Chevy Truck once and I just had to use this for his birthday. I tried using black, but the color did not come out well so I decided to make the truck red. I think that is one of his favorite colors anyway.

WHAT I DID: My card is 5x5. I came up with this sketch and this size fit with it well. First I stamped my truck 4 times in versamark then black ink and heat embossed. I punched out the front, back and middle and cut out one full truck. I colored using the Bic Mark-It since I do not YET own Copics. For the red, I colored one small part at a time with the red and then outlined with burgandy and rubbed the red tip on the burgandy to blend and get the rustic vintage color. Cool.

For the sentiments in the corner, I arranged the sentiments the way I wanted on my paper then carefully placed my acrylic block on top to keep the arrangement and stamped in black. My block has a grid, so I used that to align it in the corner. It worked pretty well.

Thank you for looking.
