'Modes of Transport' Inspiration

Hello there,

I'm here today to share with you a card that I've made for an inspirational mid-month piece over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

The stamps that I've used are all by Sheena Douglass. I've had the stamps for years but I think that they're still available.

The steam train was coloured using Spectrum Noir and the rest of the scene was painted using various inks.

Wishing you all a happy and colourful day x

Such a fantastic card Sandra, the colours on the train really pop against the muted tones of the rest of the card.

It's a super card for a male Sandra and love to read what inspired you, the little pile of luggage conjures up thoughts of heading off somewhere nice for a few days - although the train may look a tad different.

Hi Sandra,
what a brilliant card and your work as usual is fantastic.
Love the stamp used as my DH used to be a fireman on the Railway when he was younger so that card would be very apt for him.
Wonderful coluring and inking too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
