The little pick-up truck is an old SU stamp, but it's just great for guy cards. The background paper is embossed with gears, and the little banner used the same folder. I directly inked the raised parts of the gears on the banner to bring out the detail. I distressed the edges of the background with the airbrush.
The banner looked pretty empty, but then, I remembered the keys that I have stashed away. I picked a small, light one, and it works perfectly for the embellishment here.
The blue and brown background colors on the image layer were done with the airbrush. I colored the truck first and then, masked it to airbrush over and around it. The truck layer was cut out using a Spellbinder's die.
The small 'pearls' at the bottom were white originally. The airbrush was used to change them to a dark brown. What a difference it made. I love how these turned out. Hemp twine was also used to embellish the card.
No challenge for this one....just a fun card to create. I hope that he really likes his card.
Have a peaceful Friday evening and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
