Just Truckin' on by

One of my favorite sets, old faithful ~ Loads of Love. This is probably one set that I will use FOREVER! It's so versatile, you can do anything with it. So, of course I had to use it for Valentines day.

The base card is a light pink linen paper that I got a long time ago at a store in California. I tore the edge off the side to reveal a peek at the inside. I took a piece of Chocolate Chip cs and a piece of Pink Passion and tore the side off those too. The Pink Passion was a little too plain so I stamped the hearts from the Loads set with Real Red ink. I layered them to to the card with a length of ribbon. I stamped the truck, hearts and girl (hey, that's me!!) and colored it in with pencils and gamsol and sponged around the edges with Pink Passion ink. If you notice I shaded under the truck with grey pencil and gently blended it with my gamsol. Yes, I'm addicted to that stuff!!!

I layered that to a piece of Chocolate Chip cs and adhered it to the card. The card was still missing something so I stamped Loads of Love with Real Red ink on to a piece of Pink Passion scrap and then on to a piece of Chocolate Chip scrap and placed that in the lower left corner.
If you notice in the lower right corner there is a rub on that I placed just inside, that is from Cloud 9.

I still think that it is missing something ~ but I may come back to it later and play around with it.
