I Really Made That?

Every month there is a challenge issued to the current Dirty Girls and Alumnae, I've done one since I've been on the team. This month I thought I'd play along.....oh brother! Here is what we had to do.......

March is a time to usher in new things. Afterall, Spring comes in March! So, I have a fun challenge for you. This month we are going to do a Featured Stamper challenge. Who is the featured stamper? Well, YOU are!

This month, you are going to choose the oldest card in your gallery (or at least one on your very first page of uploads)... and you are going to CASE it!

Here is the catch... just like the regular featured stamper challenge, you are going to change at least three things on your card (i.e. different colors, different stamps, different embellishments), but we want to be able to see the subtle changes.

Ok, are you ready for this? I don't have the card anymore...I probably sent it to some poor soul who no doubt wondered what was I thinking!!! I tried to copy the picture from SCS but it wouldn't let before you go any further, you MUST follow this link and view the original card! shocked Pictures, Images and Photos Seriously, at the time I probably thought it was good! shocked Pictures, Images and Photos

thumbs up Pictures, Images and PhotosThanks to all the wonderful stampers on SCS, lots more toys!... I've learned and grown, and I'm happy to show my updated version!
As you can see, I used the same two sets, changing from a "snow" scene, adding in some ground cover and small rocks from Cornish Heritage Farms. It's all colored with Copics, I masked the truck then airbrushed the "forest" floor and sky.

The windows of the truck are cut out and filled with Matte Accents by Ranger to look like actual glass. I stamped another pine tree on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored it and airbrushed, then fit it behind the windows (behind the entire card front) so it looks like you're looking right though to the trees behind the truck!

Geez Dawn...this is fantastic...It really looks like it should be put on canvas...are you sure you aren't related to DaVinci??? Truly, wish I could come to your house and you could teach me this technique :)

I really liked your first card! Your second though shows just how much you've grown in your ability to colour and create scenes. Brava!
