Vintage Train


Regulars o my blog will know how much I love the Stampendous Snowy Postcard stamp and when I saw this one on the lovely and talented Nic's blog I had to buy it. Hubby loves steam trains so I think this may well be on his card this year. I stamped it with DI Vintage Photo twice and then used lots more DI on the images. The top one was cut out and raised on foam pads. I decided to just colour the holly with Copics for a change. The paper is Kaisercraft Dear Santa and I have distressed all the edges. I added a kraft border cut with a MB Frostyville die and some pearls.

Have a good weekend everyone x

Oh you are bad...not just for buying this stamp but also for making me want it **chuckle**

Lovely card Marianne and I'm sure this stamp will be used as much as your Snowy postcard because it is a fabulous image.

Brilliant card Marianne. Men are so difficult to please with cards. We have the Bluebell Steam Railway which comes into our town every day. If I am in the garden, I can hear it clearly, as the station is not that far away. They have a lot of different thing going on, like a fish supper run! Hope the fair went well. I have done one today as well. Very busy and sold loads of things again. Need to make more clocks, as I have another next Saturday! Hugs, Carol S.xx
