Keep on track!

I really like the new stamp set – All Aboard – released by Mark’s Finest Papers this month. This scene stamp can be colored and looks really wonderful, but I used it today by simply stamping it with the brown ink and cutting into the one inch tiles. I then mounted them just a bit away from each other onto a green square and then embossed that with the Sizzix bricked folder. I then sponged a little more of the brown ink on to distress and bring out the embossed brick pattern.

That square is mounted onto the brown. The card front is vanilla, but I smudged it so had to distress it by sponging. Trust me, it was a good boo boo as it really looks better. I then added the tracks at the bottom of the card and the sentiment. I wanted a little ribbon or something on the bottom, but ribbon just didn’t look right, so I stamped some twill tape with another stamp from the set  - the rail road crossing stamp, knotted it, and attached to the tracks.

Thanks for stopping by once again. Please come back soon.
