Spotlight on Karen Giron

Karen has an amazing blog and posts weekly sketch challenges. This is my entry for sketch # 15

I love how easy and simple this sketch is. This came together very quickly.

I ran my Happy Happy Birthday wheel on Kraft cardstock. Cut 1 1/4 inch strips and space them apart just a bit. Stamped the truck with brown Stazon on watercolour paper. Coloured with ink and watercolour brush. Waited for the ink to dry and cut around the image. Cut out an oval shape with my old Coluzzle, adhered the truck with Pop Dots and voila!! For fun, I decided to decorate the inside of my card. Great way to use scraps of paper.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!
