Dad's a Classic!

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

Head over and visit the rest of the KSS Crew which as of today also includes TAMMY!  She's back and we're trilled to have her with us again!

  1. LOVE that truck, Julie and how you did it in all black. I like the silhouetted look it gives it. And thanks for the welcome made my day!
