Loads of Love

I dug into my SU archives to find this Loads of Love stamp set for
the following challenges: 
The Challenge #58  - masculine photo inspiration

I used distress inks to watercolor the truck, then added Glossy Accents to the windows and hubcaps before fussy cutting and adhering to the textured CS tag.  I blended the trees and clouds using an Aquapainter.  Even though
there are no hearts to be found on this card, I'm thinking it could pass for a masculine valentine!

STAMPS: Loads of Love (SU).
PAPER: Be Amazing in the Follow Your Heart series of DP by My Mind's Eye; Vintage Cream by PTI; Textured ivory CS by Bazzill.
INK: Peacock Feathers, Carved Pumpkin, Mermaid Lagoon, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, Antique Linen.
ACCESSORIES:  Traditional Tags STAX Die-Namics by MFT, Jute ribbon and jute twine, Glossy Accents.
