I love to make masculine cards and I played around with two different coloring techniques to make similar cards.
This card was done by stamping with Versafine on watercolor paper and then painting with a wet brush and Distress Ink in various colors. I then brushed around the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I took a skewer and used the tip to add some white drops of acrylic paint for "snow". The image and sentiment are from a Unity KOM called Conspiracy of Love. I matted it on a scarp of plaid paper I had and matted it on a kraft card base.
I used the same image for this card, but stamped it with a dye ink and colored it with pencils. I used Gamsol to blend the pencil and it really makes a difference. I wanted to do a more night-time background. I stamped the truck on a scrap piece of paper and held it over the truck while I used a blending tool to blend Distress Oxide ink around it. I started with Fossilized Amber in front and out the window and put Faded Jeans everywhere else. I then sprinkled water on it and patted it dry with a paper towel. I then used Distress Spray in Picket White to spray over the image to look like snow. I distressed the sentiment in the same way using mostly the yellow color. I like the night effect and will practice more with it. - Dense
