Winter Truck

Not long ago I won a Guest Design spot at Creatful Heart.  This is my creation for them using a Winter theme for their current challenge.

I didn't have many "Winter" images so I had to think outside the box for this one.  I didn't take the easy option and just used a Christmas image :)

You can find Worn Out Truck here

I wanted to do a mainly monochromatic card with a pop of colour.  I've created a winter sky and used a brighter blue for the truck so it stands out.  As the truck is supposed to be worn out I decided to try and add some patina so it looks rusty.  I've done all this was Copics and I just love how it came out.  The background of snow was created using a white polychromos pencil and white gel pen.

I've used some black card for framing the image and card.  The snowy design paper has been in my stash for ages - I think its a BeBunny one.

So create a real wintery feel I've added lashings of snowtex.  The Winter Wishes is wooden I got this in Hobby Craft and the December sentiment is a wood chip element I got from Scrap and Craft.

Hope you love my creation and enter the challenge :)
