Got Tractor?
That's the name of this fun new set, released this month, from Clear Dollar Stamps that I've been keepin' busy with (see my previous post). This time it's the front-loader on display. Wouldn't it be fun to keep this phrase and color the tractor pink & red come Valentine's Day?! I pulled out my cloud stencil's so addictive, I covered the entire piece of paper in no time (watch out, walls!). And I think it makes such a clean, professional background. To make the dirt hills, I simply cut partial circles from SU's Close to Cocoa cardstock, then rounded the corners and sponged the edges with walnut ink. Another design note: You can't tell in the photo, but I popped up the shovel portion of the tractor, as well as the front & rear wheels (and that bumper thingy above the back wheel). Now here's the rest of what's what:
