Ice Cream Truck

I was sorting through my stamps, and came across this A Muse Ice Cream Truck that I purchased last year. I thought my new Rhonna Farrer swirl would look cute stamped behind the truck. At first I colored this with watercolor crayons, but it almost looked pink. That's when I decided to scribble a little of my Real Red Stampin' Write marker on a non-porous surface, and use my Aqua Painter to make it look red. I used a Going Gray watercolor crayon to "ground" the truck. This is simple design that my kids love, because we have an ice cream truck that visits our subdivision during the warmer months of the year.
