When I saw that the Global Design Project #gdp403 theme this week was ‘Stripes’ I really wanted to play along with it. You can draw stripes, paint watercolour stripes, use patterned paper, make use of paper scraps and create a striped pattern, criss cross those stripes for checks… you get it – the possibilities are many.
My first thought was to use the striped paper which is available our Classic and In-Color 6″x6″ paper packs. I pulled out several colours, used none and just ended up with a big pile of stuff on my desk. I picked the lovely checked sheet from the Inked Botanicals DSP which is made up of stripes and layered it onto and embossed striped Basic White panel.
With Father’s Day in just 6 weeks I though I would combine all 3 of these challenges and chose the Trucking Along bundle to meet the TGIF Challenges #tgifc430 brief of travel. I then followed along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #FMS595 which made designing the card much easier.
The truck body was coloured in Lost Lagoon, Pool Party and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. I added a tree ring in keeping with the outdoor theme I was trying to create for this Father’s Day card. I have several of these tree rings die cut and ready to be put on projects. These are kept in the folder which the dies come in and then when I need one, all I need to do is just add some colour. So for this tree ring I blended Wild Wheat, Pecan Pie and Copper Clay ink with a Blending Brush.
I added some leaves die cut again from Basic White Cardstock. These were blended with Mossy Meaadow and Copper Clay ink to give a variegated look.
I heat embossed the sentiment in Night of Navy/Clear Embossing Powder on the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper. Using your Clear Embossing Powder you can match any project with all the colours in our range.
HOW TO HEAT EMBOSS IN COLOUR
- Ink up the stamp in Versamark
- Immediately ink it up in desired ink colour
- Stamp onto Cardstock/Designer Series Paper
- Pour Clear Embossing Powder over the image
- Set with Heat Tool
- You have a coloured embossed image
I hope you have enjoyed this project using the cute truck which has been very popular. The Trucking Along bundle is available now in our Online Exclusives range while supplies last.
