For this week’s project, I made a one layer card using Neenah Solar White cardstock. First, I stamped the truck from Memory Lane Stamp Set and then masked it using the masking sheet that I cut to the shape of the truck. After I masked the lower part of the card using post its, I coloured the sky with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Candid apple and Fired Brick Distress Inks and used a Nuvo blending sponge to get a gradient effect. I then sprayed water using Tim Holtz Distress sprayer and dabbed the excess using a kitchen towel.
After that, I removed the post-its but did not remove the masking sheet from the truck. I stamped the trees from the Memory Lane Stamp Set using Evergreen, Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf by Altenew Inks. Then, I inked the ground using Tea Dye Distress ink and a Nuvo blending sponge. To add texture to the ground, I used Ground Expresso and Vintage Photo Distress ink along with an embossing tool. To create the shadow below the truck, I used Ground Expresso ink with my water brush.
After colouring the background, I removed the mask from the truck and coloured it using Zig Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the same set with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, and the card was complete!
