This month’s challenge at Ken Oliver Crafts is Vacation. I went with a road trip theme for my project.
My card uses Color Burst (Sepia & Alizarin Crimson), Ken Oliver Crafts Clear stamps Covered Bridges and my Mini MISTI.
After my color burst was completely dry I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the car. This is on textured watercolor paper and it took a few stampings to get a nice image (thank you Mini MISTI!).
Next I added the sentiment. I finished my card off by rounding the corners and adding a button.

I used CC163 Cover-a-Card Watches & Keys, MC656 Thankful clear set & DIE388-Thankful die along with my MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) for today’s project.
Since this was a big background stamp I used tape on the corners of my card to keep it in place on my MISTI tool. I inked the stamp with brown ink and then added some blue ink with a blending tool before stamping.my background (CC163 Cover-a-Card Watches & Keys). I inked and stamped a couple times to get a nice blend in the colors.
I added a few swipes of white acrylic paint (with my finger) along the card. Set aside and let dry completely.
I created a panel by swiping the same brown and blue ink onto cardstock.
I die cut the DIE388-Thankful die with my Big Shot.
To finish my card I stamped “for you” and then added the Thankful die cut.
