I made a card today for Gina K's INSPIRE8 challenge "Check Please" & CardPatterns Sketch49
This is my card for both challlenges:
My card inspiration came from GinaK Design's Inspire8 Challenge at (http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/inspiration-challenge-inspire8
). . . . And I used CardPatterns Sketch #49 (http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/
) for i'ts sketch!
Card base is from Cloud9Design. Checks are from my stash, probably from Joanns.
I Stamped train from GinaK Design: Theresa Momber's "Life is Good" Stamp; colored in with THoltz weathered wood. I fussy cut the caboose before cutting out with the petite Oval Nestabilitie with my CB. Then embossed oval, sponged inside Nestie with THoltz Fired Brick Dye Ink & Ancient Page Saffron. Used Versamark Pen & HEmbossed with red EP around outside of focal oval. Mounted on black oval...I used Gum Arabic mixed with gold Perfect Pearls Powder from Ranger to paint around outside perimeter. I also used this mixture to paint the windows of train & Light.
I used black ribbon to mimmick RR Tracks. And I used 2 brads from Special Moments @ Greenbrier Intnl. Inc. along with an old button & 2 old wood looking long buttons & gold thread for the bottom ribbon element. (that actually sticks up about 1/4 of an inch! I'll have to give it to someone I can hand deliver to or put in a package :-)
