Happy Dirtday

Hi Everyone:  I have a real quick post for you today.  The 2011-12 IB&C has several new stamps for guys, little and big.  This card uses the I Dig You stamp set and comes with 3 different "mighty" machines.

The sky was done using a template to make the clouds.  I came across the template on  Gretchen Baron's site called the Cloud Template.  Using this and sponging colour around the template makes the clouds look very lifelike. 

Stamps: I Dig You (c – 122722 $24.95, w – 122720, $33.95 p. 93, 2011-2012 IB&C)
Paper: White Naturals, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Pool Party, Just Add Cake DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie

The backhoe was stamped twice, the first time using the Basic Black ink and the second time with the Pumpkin Pie ink.  The box  was cut out and added to the backhoe with dimensions.

I can't believe that I didn't use my Big Shot or any other accessories.  This would be a very quick card to make if you are short of time.

Enjoy your evening and until next time....
