Hi, everyone! This week's Sketch Challenge #802 over at Splitcoast was super fun! I needed a birthday card for my nephew who just turned four and he LOVES any kind of heavy equipment or trucks. When I saw the 'caution tape' stamp in the 'Dump Truck Birthday' set from Divinity Designs LLC, I knew this was the right set for the sketch layout! I began by cutting out the background panel with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, the bottom layer with the Matting Rectangle Die, and the card base with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies. The caution tape was stamped at an angle, then cut out with a paper trimmer. Once the strip was cut, I trimmed a bit more from each side so that there would be separation of the sections. The background was sponged over scratch paper masks for the dirt and the Clouds and Raindrops Dies for the clouds; the dump truck was stamped, fussy cut, colored with markers, then popped up with foam tape. Four balloons (for birthday #4) were cut out with the 'Happy Birthday' Dies set and popped up with foam tape after adding baker's twine.
Thanks for visiting with me!
