Dont get carried away

I dont have anything new I created to share with you today so I thought Id show you a card I made for my Dad for Fathers Day. I love this tow truck image from Hambo! This looks alot like my Dads tow truck when I was about 5 yrs old. Im a complete Daddys girl and I always loved going with Daddy in the truck! He loved this card!
The main image is stamped with black stazon and colored with prismacolor pencils and blended wit gamsol. I added crystal effects to the windows and headlights. I used my prismacolor black marker to make the lines for the road. I also added silver brads to the center of the tires. The main image is also popped up on dimensionals. The going gray layer is stamped with linen in black it kinda reminds me of a road texture or tires I really cant figure out which one but either way it works for this card!LOL! This is one of the cards I kept messing with and ended up almost messing it up! I added corner piercing and tried to use the black marker but that didnt show up too well so I went back over it with the white gel pen. I also added piercing to the ruby red base on both sides of the image.

We're off today heading to FL for Faiths stamping retreat! Hope you have a great day!
