OCC...Loads of Love!




Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing card made with this week's challenge on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week is a sketch challenge, called "Let's Play Dress Up". Use the basic sketch and dress it up however we wanted.

You all know I love a sketch challenge. I pulled out an oldie but a goodie Stampin' Up set. I have had this set forever and I have hardly ever used it. I started by stamping the little truck onto some GP card stock with some Memento black ink. I colored it with my copic markers. I am still learning with those, but I do like how the truck turned out. The hearts are colored the same way, with copics, using some pinks and reds, and then I added a bit of glitter to them.

I then looking for some paper and card stock to match the truck. The closest I could find was some Marina Mist. I had just gotten the Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack, which includes Marina Mist so I pulled out a piece. I also used some white card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF. I added the sentiment with black stazon ink using my stamp-a-ma-jig and masking off to make the straight line sentiment, because the stamp is not made that way.

I added some Marina mist ribbon and some red mini brads for a pop of color.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
