Happy Birthday Frank!

Good Sunday afternoon!! If you follow the fabulous High Hopes Stamps blog at all you know that Tina's{the owner of High Hopes} grandfather is turning 88 this month. She had a special request to flood his mailbox with cards from all over the world and here is the card that I will be sending out on Tuesday.

I colored the old truck image from TAC in with my SU watercolor pencils and then used CTMH Liquid Glass for the windshield and windows. Here is a close up of looks pretty neat

I seem to have trouble with masculine cards...I only have a couple of sets suitable for male cards and it seems like every time I need one, I use the same stamps and paper, so this one is totally different and I hope Frank enjoys it.

We are just hanging out today but are going skating a little later this afternoon!! Should be a good time...I haven't been skating since I was a kid!! Oh what fun:-)

Thanks for popping by!!

  9. This is a Great Card Kelly!!!

    Great Coloring, and choice of Papers.

    For Water Coloring. I love to use my Aqua Painters. You can water color with them using
    Ink Pads (even with one orange you can get multiple shades by adding more color in layers.
    Marker Tips
    Water Color Crayons

    and many more mediums!!!

    That is just my personal favorite though!!!
