WEDNESDAY, May 11: Big Boy Toys:



This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 332. My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 322 - Blushing Celery Saffron. Panel 1 is for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVER CHALLENGE # 324 - Colored Embossing.
This set I used is called "BIG BOY TOYS" and it is from MARKS FINEST PAPERS.
I stamped the focal image in momento tuxedo black twice. Colored with copics and cut the car out of the 2nd image to pop it up.  I lined the dirt road with some Summer Flower Soft because I love a road lined with fresh flowers.

Ink: momento tuxedo black, so saffron
Accessories: cuttlebug, Diamond ef, ribbon, dimensionals, summer flower soft
