Masculine rusty truck card

Today's card has a lot of die cutting for the Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesaday Challenge and their die cutting theme. I started by doing some ink smooshing of distress ink on water color paper to create the look of an old truck that the paint had peeled off and it was starting to rust. I used Pumice stone, Iced spruce, and Rusty hinge. While that was drying die cut my wheels and tires and the window. To make the window look like glass the used a little bit of blue distress ink that was left on the blending tool. (Not really sure which one it was.) Then I added liquid glass over the top to give it shine like glass.

I  added the red balloon in the back of the truck for an element of fun.  The clouds were added with an ink blending tool, some tumbled glass distress ink and a cloud that was free handed out of some scrap paper.  Guy cards are some of the harder cards to do and I am going to challenge myself to come up with some more guy cards soon. This card is for a family friend in fact he is the person that introduced my husband to me. Him and my husband are always talking trucks so this was very fitting. I even found a sticker with a vintage V8 on it for the envelope.  Hope you enjoyed this card and the rest of your day.
