Country Livin' Truck

I can't say I've ever seen a truck like this but I just love this image.  Unfortunately this particular vehicle seems to have been abandoned and the grass is growing long around it.  It's not too forlorn though - there are some wild flowers for company and, despite the clouds, it seems to be a nice day!

The truck is watercoloured while the sky and foreground are sponged.

Country Livin' is such a great stamp set for anyone who, like me, enjoys colouring!
I masked the truck (with the windows cut out) before sponging the sky but I removed the mask before adding the grass, for which I used two of the images from In The Meadow, some sponging and some random strokes with markers. 

The greeting is from the Hostess stamp set Time Of Year and is cut with the matching die from the Bunch of Banners framelits.

I think this makes a good "masculine card"!

Thank you for visiting

  1. As beautiful as your card is ( which I'm just seeing for the 1st time today), I can't believe there are no comments. It's gorgeous!!! I hope you got some lavish praise somewhere. :) Great job!

    1. Haha, Karen! You are very kind and I really appreciate your lovely comment!

  2. I love how you combined the three stamp sets. The sky is outstanding, it’s the hardest for me to do. I can never get the clouds right.
    I agree with Karen, It is a beautiful card.
