None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio.
If all the stations are rock and roll, there's a good chance the transmission is shot.
Larry Lujack

This week our sponsor is Sandi Samples!
This truck from Sandi is actually one of the first digis I ever attempted.
I received it when we had a digi image challenge at The Outlawz and I was trying out something new!


MY CARD
Size: 5.5 x 5.5

I printed the image on some mottled blue DP then added additional color with my Prisma Color pencils.
I added glaze to the headlights, stamped the image on the door to mimic an old work truck sign and added a touch of glitter to the star with a black glitter pen I bought from Ikea a while back (best gel pens ever!)
After fussy cutting it out, I added it the card base with foam dimensionals.
Enjoy!

Supplies:
53-Old Chevy Truck digi from Sandi's Samples
Blue DP from Provocraft
Prisma Color Pencils
Stamps from Stampin Up! (Circle of Friendship) & Inkahootz!
Bazzill card stock (card base)
DP - stash
Black corrugated paper - stash
Silver dots - stash
Aleen's paper Glaze
Black Glitter pen
foam dimensionals

Now - A funny story about this image!
My nephew is a car buff. (That comes from growing up with a dad & grandfather who are into buying and restoring Studebaker's).Using Sandi's image, I made this card for his 16th birthday!



This year he turns 18! I had decided a while ago that I wanted to use this image for his card, so Sandi sponsoring this weeks challenge was a great reason to pull in out and get to work!

 Not even thinking about the fact the I used it for his 16th birthday!
Not even thinking that I made the truck the same color!
 Totally unplanned and of course being the good Aunt that I am (lol) I am thinking that this will be a tradition for me to make his "even" birthday cards with this image!
 (Wonder if he will notice LOL!)

Thanks for looking. And stop by Through The Craft Room Door to play along with us!
