Truck Load of Thanks

I won a set of the new Tim Holtz Distressed Metallic Paints on Sunday. They arrived today.  Mario should receive an award for speedy shipping. I have to say, I could tell a craft minded person packed my envelope. My paint was wrapped in wonderful music tissue and taped with Removeable tape so I could use the tissue again. Mario and Tim rock. 

I was so excited that I sat down and made a thank you card using the brushed pewter. The link above will take you to a video on how to use them. I was out of town so I haven't watched the video yet. I plan on learning lots of cool ways to use this wonderful new paint.

This card was made with Tim's truck stamp. I used brushed pewter to color the card stock and then stamped the truck in Archival Black over the pewter. I made the trailer by stamping the back of the truck a second time. The thank you stamps are Hero Arts and Stampin Up.
