Hey! Love your blog... I just found the gift truck stamp at Michaels and am using it this year on my Christmas cards. I loved the colors you used on your truck.. can you tell me which markers and colors you used?

Thanks so much for your lovely comment Melissa! I stamped the image using Ranger Archival black ink(it's water proof) onto watercolor paper. Then I scribbled Distress Ink watercolor pens onto a acrylic block, spritz with water, and picked up the color to paint the truck. I used Faded Jeans, and Broken China for the truck color. For the rust I layered colors using Brushed Sage, Mustard Seed(tiny bit of this color), Rusty Hinge, and Barn Door. To create the rust put a small amount of the sage green and yellow down. Then paint the orange on, and finally spots of the red. Hope this helps!
