* Old Truck Photo Stamp
* Harlequin Background Stamp
* Vintage Automobiles stamp set
* Walnut Stain Distress Ink
* Broken China Distress Ink

Notes from Sarah:

The Old Truck Photo stamp made me think of rusty, distressed metal, so I wanted to bring that feel over into my card. To do this, I used Tim Holtz Distress Embossing powder to create a rough, sandpaper like texture that you just can't help but run your fingers over!

First I stamped the Old Truck stamp onto Cosmo Cricket paper with Jumbo Java Veramagic ink, then heat embossed using Walnut STain distress embossing powder. I cut around the image, and inked around the edges using Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

For the background, I stamped the Harlequin background stamp onto Cosmo Cricket paper with Broken China distress ink, and heat embossed using Faded Jeans Distress Embossing powder. I cut the background to size, and then inked around the edges with Walnut stain Distress Ink.  The same was done with the quote from the "Vintage Automobiles" stamp set. I distressed the edges of the background using a distressing tool.

The background was stuck to a Bazzill cardstock card base, then the Old Truck image was adhered at an angle. The quote was mounted to the card front using double sided foam mounting tape.

Fabulous Sarah! Here's another take on those stamps:

* Old Truck Photo Stamp
* Harlequin Background Stamp
* Vintage Automobiles stamp set
* Walnut Stain Distress Ink
* Barn Door Distress Ink
* Antique Linen Distress Ink
* Peeled Paint Distress Ink

Notes from Sarah:

For my background, I stamped the Harlequin background stamp onto Cosmos Cricket paper using Barn Door distress ink. I cut it to size, and then inked around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I did the same with the quote, tearing the top edge.

I stamped the Old Truck Photo stamp onto Cosmos Cricket paper using Timber Brown Stazon ink. I cut the image down and inked around the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink. I then coloured the image using Distress inks and an Aquash pen. I used Barn Door for the truck, Peeled Paint for the trees, and Antique linen for the ground. I mounted the image and the quote onto the background using foam mounting tape.

I attached 5 copper coloured brads to the background, before adhering to the Bazzill cardstock card base.

Fantastic projects Sarah!

And lastly, here's a card I've created using the crayon resist technique. It looks great with the Old Truck!

* Stamp Old Truck onto white matt cardstock with Archival Jet Black ink.
* Colour in the truck with a white wax crayon.
* Sponge Weathered Wood and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks over the top. The water-based ink will resist the wax crayon, leaving the truck white while the ink will colour the surrounding areas. This makes the truck 'pop' from the background! Easy and fun to do!! Check out my demo video here for a look at the Crayon Resist technique. 

So... hope you have enjoyed seeing what can be created with the Old Truck Photo Stamp! I have one more Old Truck stamp to giveaway... so be sure to leave a comment here to be in the draw :) Winner will be announced tomorrow (Sat 31st July).

WOW, I like these three. Especially those using the distress embossing powders, looks like something else to add to the wishlist. Thanks for also sharing the wax resist method.
