...Sketch Challenge #212

This was my submission for today's Sketch Challenge #212 at SCS. I started with a Kiwi Kiss Cardstock base, and I matted the other layers with a combination of Cameo Coral Cardstock and/or Kiwi Kiss Cardstock. The red patterned paper was from the Jackpot Designer Series Paper pack, and the floral horizontal strip was from the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper pack. Both of the Whisper White Cardstock panels were pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. A piece of 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon was added around the entire front panel, then Silver Jumbo Brads were added above the focal panel.
The images are from the sets "Loads of Love" and " Loads of Love Accessories". The truck, the driver, and the hearts were stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink onto Watercolor Paper, and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. They were colored with an Aquapainter and the following Classic Ink Pads: Kiwi Kiss, Real Red, Cameo Coral, More Mustard, and Basic Gray. The sentiment was also stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink onto a scrap piece of Cameo Coral Cardstock, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun, then punched out using the 1" Circle Punch. The circle mats were created using the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. The truck and sentiment panels were popped off of the card using Dimensionals.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping to see me , and I will see you again tomorrow with a card for this week's Mojo Sketch and Kristina's Color Inspiration. Until then...
