My 500th Blog Post!

Well I never would have thought that a few years ago when I started this thing called blogging that I would have made it to 500 posts! And there's no better way to celebrate than with 4 of my favourite things: Blue Pick Up Trucks, flowers and making a postcard using my favourite stamps, Stampotique of course.
Lovely Gez is our hostess at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog this week, all the details are here, and she is asking us to use the colour combination of blue and brown. Such a fabby colour combo!! 
I began with a piece of 4 inch x 6 inch white card and painted it a few shades of very neutral beige. I stamped the grass using brown ink and the truck was stamped on a separate piece of white card before being coloured using Prismacolour pencils and glued in place. I think the black splats add a bit of masculine drama and the stars add a little romance.
The stamps I used are:
I hope one day my prince will come and I hope he drives a blue pick up truck!
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
