Paper, monsters and trucks - OH MY!

I got the treat of playing with Monster Trucks - a new released rubber stamp by Victoria Case. I LOVE how detailed her stamps are - they are GREAT for coloring! I wanted to make a little project for one of my nephews and his Tonka trucks. I found this paper in my stash from American crafts - I chose the paper before I colored the monster and boy because I wanted them to match.
The tin is an electrosol tin that I saved after using all the tabs in the dishwasher - I love re-using things. It's a small tin, but will work perfect for 10 or so little trucks/cars.
I used Unity's Just my type alphabet for the TRUCKS on the top of the tin.
The tin was blue, red and yellow before. I painted the top with some acrylic paint because the tin didn't match at all with any paper that I had and it had words all over the top. I needed something and found the paint in my closet.
I definitely had to make a matching card to go with the tin. I used the same paper for the card and colored the stamped image almost identical.

Stamp: Monster Trucks (Victoria Case)
Ink: Momento tuxedo black
Paper: American Crafts
Accessories: Copics, ATG gun, White acrylic paint, tonka trucks

What a great idea - unfortunately my boys would need for you to decorate a huge dumpster to hold all of their cars! LOL I wonder if we could get enough DP to do that?
