His Truck

I decided once again to actually DO one of Gina K's challenges this last week. Gina offered her video of how to add some sparkle and shimmer to our cards by using a Sakura Glitter Pen. I LOVE these pens. They really require NO effort at all to draw or even color with. The ink just flows so easily. I rarely do "Gina's" technique challenges and I'm not sure why... other than maybe because they are in the middle of the week and well... I don't know... don't ask me hard questions!!! *smile* Gina does a truly AWESOME job on her video tutorials though and you really should just head on over and try a few. Her style is very quick, easy and step by step. Nothing seems complicated when you watch Gina in action! I used my Cuttlebug folder to make the diamond background for this card and my glitter pen as instruction by Gina. I can't believe how much glitter this pen emits. It's just super shiny in real life. My truck is from Asela Hopkins, "The Journey" set and I have used it WAY more than I would have ever imagined. I did cut the "wooden racks" off the back of the truck to make it look more like my husband's real truck. I have to tell you... he was SOOOO happy when he first bought this truck. He snuck out early one morning before I woke to run to the nearest QuickTrip to get us a "treat"... a hot cappuccino. Well... LOL... (sorry, I'm really NOT laughing)... on the way back... he uhhhhh... put BOTH cups up ON the dashboard... took a corner... and well... yeeeep... cappuccino everywhere in his BRAND NEW truck!!! *sigh* Needless to say... whenever he turned on the heater... years later still.. it smells of cappuccino. Now honestly... I'm NOT laughing... but... well... wouldn't you think ... oh... never mind. *grin* This truck is getting quite old... but I have to say... it does bring back many memories (and smells).. ha! Ooops. Have a great day and grab a cappuccino... they smell wonderful! *smile* Signature
