Hello! It's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I'm here to tell you that next week KSS will be having a NEW release - WOOT! Yes, it's true, a brand new release from the Kitchen and it's sure a great one, wait until you see! The sets being released are pretty special, but I'll let Maria explain that to you.
For now, I wanted to get a jump start on Father's Day and what better set to use then Classic Old Truck. I'm sure I said this before, but when I was little my dad had a '52 Ford Pickup truck (boy does he wish he had kept that!). This set always makes me think of that truck!
This is a bit different from my usual style, but if you've been following closely lately you'll have noticed that my "usual" style has evolved a bit - maybe not permanently or not completely but playing with some mixed media supplies in my cardmaking has freshened things up a bit and brought some new interest! I wanted this card to have an aged appearance, like my Dad's old truck so I used a piece of map which I gesso'd lightly. I then added some splotches of paint and spritzed it heavily with water to make it run and fade.
The truck was stamped using the color recipe from the KSS Forum. I wanted to keep it b&w so it would stand out from the background.
Stamp 3a - Tuxedo Black, Stamp 2a - Tuxedo Black stamped off, repeat, Stamp 1a - Tuxedo Black stamped off, Stamp 3b - Espresso Truffle, Stamp 2b - Tuxedo Black, Stamp 1b - Tuxedo Black
