Today's LIMITED SUPPLY - Alphabet Sentiment.Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT - Inchies.Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE.Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE.Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS - Embossed Watercolor.The main image was stamped in Choc Chip Craft Ink on watercolor paper then heat embossed using clear detail EP and colored with SU watercolor crayons. I applied crystal effects to the headlights. This truck has been sitting in a yard for a long time so the windshield & windows are gone. I finally used my Wild West Alphabet and stamped the "D" then used my Making Memories tag maker for a 1 inch square tag. I used an alphabet I got from Wal-Mart years ago to finish spelling DAD. The card base is ruby red stamped with Crosshatch using ruby red. Hope you like it
