Trucking Along

Thought I'd share a quick birthday card using the sketch from Simply Stampin Challenge The image is from Countryside (SU) and  sentiment from Watercolor Trio (also SU).  Pretty CAS as I feel guys just don't like a lot of foo-foo on their cards.  I DID color the truck this time (ugh!)......last time I think I just colored the apples but decided to give it a go on coloring this time.  Yikes - a lot more practice is needed I'm afraid! I colored it with Prisma's - and it's a little like a work of art - if you stand really far back from it, it actually looks pretty good! LOL!



I'll enter this in the challenges at not only Simply Stampin Challenge for the sketch, but also Cards For Men (Happy Birthday) and Creative Mondays (cards for men).

Thanks for stopping by.............and yes, I know I'm WAY overdue for a Funny Friday - so stay tuned and I'll be back in the morning with that!!!

This is a fabulous masculine card and I agree with you...no little extras for the guys. They don't appreciate that kind of thing! LOL!

I really like this one with that old blue truck! Great coloring and dsp, and I agree with you about the foo-foo! Not required for guys :)

Lynn, I don't think you need more practice. I think the coloring on your whole image is terrific. Love your papers also. Have a wonderful evening.

Karen said...

Lynn, great card and I don't think you need to practice water colouring. The truck looks wonderful and so do the apples. I am sure the male recipient will be honoured with your card. Love the simplicity of your card.

It's terrific, Lynn. I still say nobody does CAS guy cards better than you! That doesn't mean I'm going to give up on taking that title away from you. :-D Hugs, my friend.

Great solid looking masculine card Lynn. And the paint job on the truck is just right for a beat up 'ole ute.

From this angle, your truck looks pretty ok to me Lynn. Just love it. The colouring looks fabulous. Yeah... I need to see a Funny Friday card, will pop by later. hugs Sharon x

Vicky Hayes said...

I think it looks great Lynn - things don't need to look airbrushed to look good and your truck looks like a colour sketch. By the way I love the word 'foo-foo' - that's definitely going into the Vicky Hayes special dictionary!
