Createful Heart Digis & Design 30th September 2017 Inspiration

For my inspirational piece this month I have chosen "Worn Out Truck", another Createful Heart Digi, but this time this truck (or ute, as we call them in Australia) was designed by Mark Smith, Mary's talented husband. This digi can be found on the Createful Heart Digi Etsy shop here  https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/509668215/worn-out-truck-digital-image-stamp?ref=shop_home_active_6. As soon as I saw this digi, I knew it would be fantastic for any masculine card and as I was privileged enough to work with it for September, I thought it would be perfect for Father's Day.  I wanted to give it a rust effect and looked over a class I had purchased from Kit and Clowder but it was working with a copper vase, so I did some improvising of my own.  I am happy enough with my first attempt at rust, but since making the card, I have come across a few utes in paddocks on the way to my son's house, so I might even re-visit this digi after taking a few photos of the real thing.  I have used Copics, a few embellishments from my stash and the alphabet sentiment is from The Resin Rainbow, another Etsy shop, that sells resin embellishments and is situated in Australia.  This would be a great image to work with on our next Blog challenge.  Check out the Createful Heart blog here http://createfulheartcards.blogspot.com.au/ and join in our Fortnightly Challenge there.  Be sure to read the Challenge rules http://createfulheartcards.blogspot.com.au/p/challenge-rules.html and join us every fortnight.  There are some great prizes on offer!
