Country Roads....

take me home, to the place I belong....
I just love this old truck from Artistic Outpost's Home stamps. I was just playing around with a polished stone background (haven't really played with inks in ages!!) and decided to stamp this truck on it. I loved how it looked embossed in black on this green and gold background. With the aid of my stamp positioner, I was able to add the sentiment under it (from the same plate of stamps). A very simple card, but I really wanted the main image to stand out.

Materials: PAPER: Colormates, Treasures, High Gloss (WorldWin) STAMPS: Home (Artistic Outpost) INK: Versamark (Tsukineko), Adirondack Alcohol Inks (Ranger) OTHER: Diamond border punch (Fiskars), brads, thin foam tape

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creatively wonderful day!
