2/3 LRS Sensational Sunday Inspiration

Good Morning Blogging Friends!

I hope you have had a fantastic weekend so far and that you get to spend today relaxing!  Today I am back with more inspiration for you today with Loves Rubberstamps

When I seen this stamp, Impression Obsession Classic Truck, in the Loves Rubberstamps store, I knew I had to have it.  It reminds me of my dad.  With him in mind, I created this card to send to him while he is away on business.  It was quite a surprise for him because I had to be sneaky to get the address of where he would be.  It was on his desk Monday morning when he arrived at the office.  He texted me first thing and said that I had made his day!  Anyhow, back to the fun! 

The image is stamped with Memento Ink in tuxedo black ink on cryogen paper.  I colored it up with my copics.  I then matted the image on black cardstock to make it pop off the card.  The background design papers are by Simple Stories Harvest Lane.  Quite manly, I think.  I distressed the papers and added some Tim Holtz Gather Twigs Distress Ink around the edges.  I also used a piece of cardboard that I peeled of the front of to add some more dimension.  I finished the card off with a few copper brads that match the paper I have chosen.

Copics used:
Truck:  BG11, BG72, BG78, C0, C3, C7, C9
Trees:  E42, E43, E47, E49
Grass:  G24, G99, N5, YG97
House:  W1, W3, 0, R85, R89, C9
Barn:  R85, R89, C3, C7, C9
Fence:  W0, W1, W3
Sun:  Y00, Y32
Sky:  B91, B60
Dirt:  E41, E44, E43
