Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Birthday Wishes

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project for a birthday - this is a perfect challenge for this week - today is my Daddy's birthday, and tomorrow is my baby's birthday... and with that, all my kids will be in the double digits. Crazy.

With today's card I'm sharing a couple of new summer stamps that we'll be releasing next weekend! I had a lot of requests for masculine stamps, so I tried to include plenty on my pages. These images come in red rubber and also as part of a clear set with some other designs and sentiments.

I wanted to keep my coloring simple, so I used a Zig Clean Color brush marker to color the car, sponged the edges, then hit the panel with a couple of spritzes of water to let the color spread. Simple!
