Freebie Focus - sale-a-bration tasty trucks.

Now as I sat shivering in my craft room today while the snow fell then froze, it didn't become apparent to me that choosing an ice cream truck project was a bit ...well... bonkers ! but here it is. Tasty trucks is the name of the stamp set as for the cost well its NOTHING, yes you hear right this set will cost nothing. Thats because its part of sale-a-bration which is being run by Stamping' Up! from January through to the end of March. With 12 different free items to choose from it really is worth checking out the awesome deal. 

Now whilst I don't profess to be a Picasso I do love colouring its so therapeutic and stamping the images from this set in Memento tuxedo black meant I could do just that. You can make designs so totally unique when you add your own colours and twist to them. I used Peek a boo peach card stock for the card base which just reminds me of an ice lolly a truly fun colour to use. As you can see I added banners, foods and a birthday sentiment to my card and thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I did make a slight boo boo when inking what would be the grass I went a little heavy but I blended it out with flirty flamingo ink to give a soft finish to the cards edge. Using in colour markers helped me co-ordinate the colours ... it really is easy and great fun give it a try.
