A little "twisted"

Have you ever read something and thought of it a different way than it was meant? I was working on a challenge and had just those thoughts. The challenge was to use pattern paper and piece together an object. I thought it would be cute to use the ever famous "Truck" and piece it together in different colors. I got out my Designer Prints Series Paper in several colors, stamped the truck on each and cut out the pieces to put together. When I looked at the truck in it's multiple colors it reminded me of something you would see on the "redneck" neighbors lawn up on cement blocks. I thought about being 16 and getting ready for your driver's license and the fear that your dad would get you some horrible car that everyone would laugh at.
So here is my "twisted" truck. I cut off the wheels and used them on the side of the card. I drew in the jacks with a journaling pen. The truck is done in Regal Rose, So Saffron, and Almost Amethyst. The mats are Regal Rose and Night of Navy. The card base is Mellow Moss. Stamp sets used: Loads of Love, Headline Numbers, Polka Dots & Paisley.
Look at your stamps in a new way and stamp something "Twisted" today.
