Rustic Country Livin’

Rustic Country Livin’ I decided I had shared lots of feminine cards recently so thought I’d do a masculine themed one instead today. This stamp set and technique could be used for any occasion for a man. You can leave it fairly plain or embellish it with more papers, Linen Thread, Baker’s Twine etc. I love this stamp set for cards as it’s quite versatile. The guitar image in the set is great for the music buffs and the boots can be used for dancing of any type and can be done up in any colour you like.

The sentiment comes from a NEW stamp set which will be available in the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue and it’s called Birthday Greetings. It’s a great set suitable for many age groups, so when it’s available consider ordering it.

Stampin’ Up!’s Watercolor Pencils are fantastic for giving the same image many different looks. With this truck I have used Real Red as often you see old farm trucks which were once red. If you colour lightly and randomly you can create an image which looks a bit tattered and worn. Add Early Espresso on the back to make it look like a home made piece to hold all the farm gear in on the back and you’re starting to get the idea of a well used truck. I’ve used a Blender Pen with all colours.

Colours used:

  • Truck Body – Real Red
  • Back tray – Early Espresso
  • Tyres & shadows – Basic Black
  • Headliughts – Daffodil Delight
  • Chrome bits – Pumpkin Pie
  • Grass – Old Olive
