Out of a Hat Creations #65 Transport challenge

This is for a fabulous challenge over at Out of a Hat Creations about Transport - I needed to make some male cards, so this was a great excuse to play with this theme.

On a white tent style card used spiced marmalade and walnut stain distress stains and green intense pencil around edge.  Then layered a smaller piece of blue card.

Stamped onto to some patterned paper off-cuts I found.
Used Indigoblu 'Grand Tour 1' stamps coloured with Inktense pencils.

I printed and cut out some Dieselpunk cars (like the one on my blog heading) that I had designed and made myself digitally using Serif Craft Artist software.

Added some faux stitching with  black pilot pen.

Car is just a simple decoupage - only two layers.
Used Quickie glue pen and silver foil to highlight tyres and various parts of car and also on stamped image of car and girl on bike.
Cog die cuts on silver card are made by X-cut.

Thanks for stopping by and looking - Gill x
