Truckloads of Love

So, here's the final Valentine that I made for my nephew Tom. Like I said yesterday, it was hard to come up with something that wasn't too girly...so I used the ute/truck from *Loads of Love* for Tommy's card.The ute with it's load of hearts was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with SU's watercolour pencils and a blender pen. Oh...and I *meant* to stamp it crooked like that....all those hearts are weighing down the back, so that's why it's tilted....LOL!!!! {How's that for a good excuse Leslie???}

I mounted it on some Real Red and then some spotty Turquoise paper from *Petals & Paisleys*. The base card is Tempting Turquoise. I used the scallop punch on the Red layer and some Turquoise ribbon. The sentiment was stamped in black on Real Red and punched with the 1 1/4" circle and then mounted onto a Turquoise circle (1 3/8") and then a white scalloped circle. That's it...pretty simple, but suitable for a boy I think :)

I also wanted to tell you that when I was chatting with Nicole today she told me that she's going to be making a call for a Design Team for her new range of stamps that I was telling you about within the next few weeks! If you love to colour, match & layer DP, can think outside the box and have a blog then you could be just what she's looking for. I'll let you all know when she makes the announcement...I'm going to apply for sure! It's one of my goals for this year to get on a DT & to get my work published....a bit scary, but it could be fun!

Hope you're all having a great day,
Kristie

LOL! Isn't crooked FUN?! An alternate excuse could be the truck is going uphill. ;-) Nice 'guy' valentine, by the way.

Kristie it's so funny you mentioned that about stamping the truck crooked because the first thing I thought when I saw it was how clever it was because it looked like the hearts were weighing it down! LOL!
Good luck on your design team try outs!
