Trucking Along Christmas Card

Truckin Along Hand Colored Christmas Card

Hand-Colored With Stampin’ Blends

Stampin’ Up! Trucking Along Christmas card is the feature card and video for you today. We explore coloring the truck and tree with Stampin’ Blends also known as Alcohol Inks in the video. Reds are probably the hardest color to work with and I show you how I do it. 

For the background I go to my all time favorite winter/Christmas designer series paper, One Horse Open Sleigh. In case you haven’t guess, I’m having a love affair with this paper. Can a person own enough of it? I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making and sharing it with you. Happy Stamping!
