Loathe Colouring but Love Cutting

Then Paper Piecing might be the technique for you.

I've thrown together a very quick step by step tutorial using different coloured cardstock to colour the truck from the 'Loads of Love' two step stamp set.

I first stamped the truck in 'Night of Navy' classic ink on white, going grey & taken with teal cardstock. Then I cut right around the white image.

Deciding it just wouldn't work stamping the image on black cardstock for the tyres I coloured those in using a Black Stampin' Write Marker.

I cut around the Taken With Teal Image, cutting away the wheels, the window and front head light. While cutting away the window I accidently ripped the top piece of the frame so haven't been quite as precise in my cutting as I would normally have wanted. I used Two Way Glue to attach the taken with teal image over the white one.

From the Going Gray image I chose to cut out the wheel arches, bumpers and hub caps and attached those over the truck image using two way glue again.

Adding a Taken with Teal Cardblack some Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock for the road a bit of sponging in Going Gray classic ink and a greeting from the 'Basic Phrases' stamp set and the card is complete.
