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.Adventure Jeanne_Streiff

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!).1 Adventure Jeanne_Streiff

Next I added the sentiment. I finished my card off by rounding the corners and adding a button.

Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

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.1 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I added a few swipes of white acrylic paint (with my finger) along the card. Set aside and let dry completely.5 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I created a panel by swiping the same brown and blue ink onto cardstock.3 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I die cut the DIE388-Thankful die with my Big Shot.4 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

To finish my card I stamped “for you” and then added the Thankful die cut.6 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff
