recipe:

stamped truck on card and then 4 more times on seperate CS. colored all images w/ watercolor pencils & blender pens. cut out fenders, doors, & wheels and popped them up with dimensionals. on CB, masked truck then stamped sentiment over it, then put final truck on with dimensionals. tried to take a pic so you could see how nice & 3D this is, didn't quite turn out. looks much better IRL.

These are adorable! I absolutely love that truck and the text behind it. What an original way to use that truck! The little hubcaps are amazing. And the ties are adorable. :0)

I love your 3 dimensional truck! I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice. I love all the 3d stuff you did to it.
