I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday and if you are in Australia you are likely to be enjoying some family time. I hope the special men in your family enjoy a very happy Father’s Day.

The vintage truck from the Trucking Along stamp set was perfect against this background. To colour it, I used a technique which I learned during one of our demonstrator events a couple of months ago where we were shown how to create the look of a rusty old ute.


  • Stamp truck in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Fluid 100 Paper
  • Using a Water Painter add Wild Wheat ink in sections
  • Once dry, add Pecan Pie
  • Once dry, add Tahitian Tide

Pooling the water in sections will make the colours run creating the look of rust. However don’t over do it as you don’t want the colours to become muddy. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process between colour applications.

The background created with the Rays of Light stamp set was inked with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. When using a large background stamp, place the stamp face up and ink it then take the paper down to it. Press firmly and rub over it to ensure the ink transfers fully.

To take away the starkness of the white background I lightly blended Pumpkin Pie ink around the rays using a Blending Brush.

Some fussy cut clouds were added to create this mini scene. The rust look was carried through to the banners which were die cut from the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper.

I am off to celebrate Father’s Day with my daughter who insisted on taking me out today as I’ve been doing a double-role of mum and dad. I’m looking forward to a really fun day and spending time with Cassidy. If you follow me on the socials or subscribe to my newsletter, you’re sure to see some photos!

I hope you have a lovely week ahead of you.
