Happy Father's Day Husband...........
I'm sharing a make with you today that I made for my husband James for last Sunday (Father's Day).
James has a love of old American trucks (but he was quick to point out that this is a right hand drive truck????😕!!!!!). - I never noticed when I was working with it???!!!!!
Although this looks layered, this card is indeed a one layer card (all on one piece of card stock and mat and layered at the end of the make).
I started by stamping the lovely truck (Darkroom Door) and I have coloured that in with diluted distress inks. When I was happy with this middle section and it was completely dry, I masked it off with a masking sheet and then worked on the background with distress oxides.
This card is a perfect example for you to see the transparency of distress inks compared to the opaqueness of distress oxides, you can really nicely see the difference between the two - ( and how nicely they work together on a project).
I removed the masking sheet from the truck section and stamped my sentiment and "Husband" on there.
Mat and layered in black and white.
James loved it (even though he did notice it was a right hand drive truck!!!!).
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you've enjoyed your visit,
