Loads of Love

Another card for a sketch challenge, it looked quite simple to start with but I tend to have a habit of complicating things sometimes!  So after deciding to use the truck image I thought of building a scene to go with it and after some stamping, masking, stamping again, sponging on 'hills' and clouds, etc here is the result!

I used a sketch from Stamping 411 again, you're most welcome to pop over to their blog if you want to see what other people made with the sketch.

What I used:

Card:  White, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede

Ink:  Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point.

Stamp Sets:  Loads of Love, Basic Phrases

Tools and other fun stuff:  Large Oval punch, blender pens, Stampin' sponges, non SU embossing folder.


  1. Hola Frances, me encanta tu "vieja" camioneta llena de amor, es muy tierna, me encanta!!!.
    Gracias por visitar mi blog.
    Es curioso pero escribiendo me recuerdas mas a una mejicana que a una chilena, porque tengo amigos chilenos y mejicanos y me recuerdas mas a una mejicana, seguramente esto es porque es escrito...
    Te deseo un buen final de semana.

  2. Wow, your scene is awesome!! All of that hard work really paid off :)

  3. Your card has so much detail. You've built the landscape and your shading on the truck is stunning!

  4. How fun! Love the landscape background!

  5. I'm with you.. I tend to make things more complicated on my cards too. :D I think your card is fabulous! I love the coloring, the design, and the cute trees in the background! Congrats on being a stampers showcase pick for 411 this week! :D

  6. Great card!! I love that textured background!!

  7. Love this! You really gave an illusion of depth with your sponging! Great job. Thanks so much for playing along at Stamping 411 this week! Blessings, Gretchen
