April Stamps from Clear Dollar!
First, let me say how disappointed I am with this card! I fought & fought, cut & pasted, twisted & turned...but still, it was one of those cards that I just couldn't get right. And it's too bad because this set, "Dirt Rides" is a really awesome set. Great for boy scrap-book pages & cards, you really need to check it out for yourself here. And now for the "dirt" on the card (in case there's something you like!):

Stamps: "Dirt Rides", Clear Dollar Stamps
Ink: Staz-On "Timber Brown"; Ranger "Faded Denim" Distress
Markers: Copics #B06, B12, B14, B39, C3, C5, R05, R08, W5, W7, W9, Y35, Y38. Also: Copic Airbrush System for image background with #YR09
Cardstock: SU Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point
DP: W R Memory Keepers "Explore" from "White Out" Collection (orange mat)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Classic Squares
Ribbon: Bo-Bunny "Play All Day" Collection
Eyelets: Making Memories
Jumbo Grommet: Making Memories
Misc. Tools: Making Memories Paper Distressor

You can't tell from the photo, but I popped up the upper front section of the jeep using foam adhesive for some dimension, and for the tires, I stamped them on some brown dp (same collection as listed above) then cut them out and put them over the original image. Luckily, I've got another card already waiting in the wings, so you can move on to something a little easier on the eye (but do check out this great set over at the Clear Dollar Stamps webstore)!

Another great creation Erin! I am so jealous that you have the airbrush system for your Copics. I have the Ciao markers and they aren't compatible with the airbrush system. I guess I will have to get some Sketch markers someday!

Are you kidding, Erin? I think your card is great! Love the colors you chose, and the airbrushing is phenomenal!
