Train Card

(click on picture to get it larger)
This image was one that I had to have. I just love the guys expression. He reminds me of a good friend of mine. He just loved trains. The image is printed on Sparkle Card stock. I colored the image with Twinkling H2O's then I chalked around the top and bottom using Studio G chalks. If you haven't tried them, they are fantastic and they come with the applicator. The sketch is by a new challenge site called Tuesday Morning Sketches. My base is Staples matte photo paper. The blue wave is Sky Blue Crepe(Ruche) paper from Paper Temptress. I just love that the paper has such a wonderful texture. The DP is embossed with the big shot then I rubbed Faded Jean Distress Ink on top. I used a couple ribbons on the crepe paper then finished the card with a couple Skittles from Pez A Doodle. One last touch was to use Liquid Applique on the train smoke to make it puffy.
