Valentine for my Husband

I just love this stamp and die by Taylored Expressions.  I thought I could make a more masculine card using the truck.  Not sure how masculine it is, but I'm sure he will like it a lot!

I stamped the truck and hearts onto watercolor paper.  I really enjoyed using my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens (a birthday present to myself last month!) to color the truck and hearts and grass.

I have a cloud mask I hand cut from some packaging and used it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky.

I LOVE this tree stamp.  Last spring we stopped in Salado, TX and there's an awesome individually-owned stamp store called Stamp Salado.  It's two stamps.  One for the tree and another separate one for the leaves, both wood mounted.  They are by Deadbeat Designs Rubber Stamps.  This is such a versatile stamp that I hope to use a lot.

I'm entering my card on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the 30-day Color Challenge by Kathy Racoosin at The Daily Marker.

I'm also entering this in the Joy Clair 1st Monthly Challenge (thank you for the suggestion Cornelia).

Thank you for taking a look and for any comment you might like to leave.
