Hunka Burnin' Love

Turn up the heat on this old truck from "The Journey" with a custom paint job, courtesy of two Copic markers, Lipstick red and Cadmium Yellow. (Click for a closeup and copy mine, it's just some wiggles and waves, you can do it!) :) The top of the truck is colored with C1 and C3, and the bottom below the flames is C5, this gives shadow but also adds a cool two tone. C3 underneath the truck for the shadow.

A fun way to add a tag or greeting when you use the truck is a metal edged frame with brads like this SU! silver hodge podge, you have an instant license plate! "You're a Classic" is from my "Tee Talk"set. I really wanted clean lines to show off the truck so a clean and simple layout with minimal embellishments was just what I wanted. CS is all Gina K Pure Luxury: Rocket Red, Black Onyx, White and Soft Sand.



Thank for visiting today!

What a great card! I love how you did this and appreciate you sharing how you customized this card. I know of a couple of guys who would flip receiving a card like this. Thanks for sharing.
