Hey Stampers!! I’m excited to show you how I made this cute Taco Your Awesome Card, using the Tasty Trucks Stamp Set from the Sale A Bration Catalog . That you can only get for FREE when purchase $50 (tax and Shipping) before March 31, 2017.
I made this by making my own Taco Back Ground, and I used Watercolor pencils to color all of the them in as well the truck, using the Blender Pen to blend the colors. Also doing the same thing for the truck, along with using Stitched Framelits.
Let me remind you that can always can change up the colors, and such to make it your own, and you don’t have to do it like me if you don’t want to. I just hope this inspires you to be creative.
