I Dig You

Here's my card for the current Share Joy challenge.  I used the Taylored Expressions Dig In stamp set and coordinating dies along with both the sketch and color combination on my card.

I Dig You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Taylored Expressions
I used Copic markers to color the excavator (at least I think it's an excavator . . .), then cut out the image with the matching die.  To add dimension and a metallic shine to the image, I placed a silver brad at the center of each wheel.  The image was adhered to a light blue panel with a strip of torn kraft "dirt" along the bottom.  After adding a red banner strip to the top corner of the panel, I matted it on red cardstock.  The set's "I dig you" sentiment was stamped on a red cardstock strip and adhered to the bottom edge of the panel.  I added an aqua double ended banner strip beneath the image panel, then adhered it to a red card base covered with some coordinating dotted aqua patterned paper.

Materials Used:
Dig In stamp and die set (Taylored Expressions); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Hawaiian Shores cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Sno Cone cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag STAX dies (My Favorite Things); Love Me Do "Love Takes Flight" designer paper (My Mind's Eye); silver brads (Michaels); foam tape
