I saw so many cute ideas with this stamp set I just had to get it for myself! I had so much fun picking colors as you can see in a photo below, but green was my first choice because my Grandpa had a green truck like this when I was a kid. When we visited we'd ask him for a ride in his "bumpy old truck".
I used our new Tri-Blend markers to color the truck, then added some silver embossing with our new embossing pens. The markers are a 3 in one style. You get a light, medium and dark shade of color in each marker! How great is that! For the truck I started with the light shade coloring the entire truck. Next was some highlights around the curves of the fenders with the medium and the dark went on the shadow lines. After the highlighting I went over the entire truck again with the light shade. That final step is what really blends the colors together!
Our new embossing pens are a great way to emboss in some small areas like I did on the truck. I just colored the areas (the ink is pink so you know where you colored) then sprinkled on the silver powder and heat embossed! LOVE the look that gives the car.
