Happy 4-wheelin' B Day

Today is my DH's birthday and here's the card I made for him. He's so going to flip out!





Let me give you some back ground on this one! First of all, DH has a black jeep wrangler that is his pride and joy! Secondly, the dog is always with him and lastly, he has just aquired a canoe!

I used a lot of different stamps on this card to make this scene work. The jeep and canoe is from Stampin' Up, the mountain is from Alota rubber stamps, tree stamp from The Angel Company and the rocks is from Stamps by Judith. I colored most of this with Copic markers and air brushed on the dirt (still need to work on that technique) and added some liquid applique for the snow covered mountain. The jeep is colored with a black prisma color pencil and blended out with OMS. It was also cut out and popped up with foam tape. I daubered on some clouds using my cloud stencil and colorbox sky blue chalk ink.


Have a super weekend!
