Choo Choo

A lovely sunny morning again but will it last? Every day seems the same, sun in the morning and cloud and an odd shower in the afternoon. I had a busy weekend with making samples for Crafter's Companion next launch on Friday and was also out some of the time but I managed to fit in this card yesterday using a Little Claire image. I don't often make shaped cards for men so thought I would with this one for a change. I just cut a 4" x 6" card blank and added the layered image so it sticks up over the card blank. The image is coloured with Promarkers. I added some black raffia lace, spotted ribbon and Sizzix die cut stars. A bit of doodling and a Craftwork Cards sentiment to finish. I've never coloured an image just with greys and black before but it works really well with the train I think.
Challenges:
Little Claire Black and white
Cards for men Anything but square
My Partner in Crafting Crime Planes, trains and automobiles
I love Promarkers Travel/transport
Stamp with Fun Anything Goes

I'm off to do a spot of housework, then some shopping and visit my Mum so not much time for crafting and blogging today. Will have to make up for that tomorrow.
