Birthday Card Idea - Loads of Love

Need a birthday card idea for a male?  What about using the Stampin Up stamp set, Loads of Love, along with Loads of Love Accessories, and the Tailgating Wheel?  I love these products, just as so many others do.  This set has been around for several years, and I hope Stampin Up continues to include it in its catalog.

I made this birthday card for my son-in-law.  He has a very unique way with animals, so I thought the Loads of Love stamp set and the accessories were perfect for his birthday card.  

I think the card is so "stinking" cute!  I had a lot of fun making it.  The card features the stamping technique, water coloring. 

Water coloring and brayering are so much fun!  If you've steered away from these techniques, you are missing out on a lot of fun.  They are real art!

Other Stampin Up products used are: Lovely as a Tree stamp set (appropriately named); Watercolor PaperWhisper White, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Rich Razzleberry, and Pear Pizzazz card stock and various inks; Moonlight (for the headlight and windshield) and Silver Fox Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink (for the hubcaps and bumper of the truck); Round Tab Punch; and the Aqua Painter.

This is a wonderful card. The watercoloring and use of various elements to tell a "story" for your son's birthday card is superb.
