Manly Monday Chuggin Along

Welcome back to Manly Monday. I don't have any other blogger's cards today, just my own. I've been a crazy woman scrapping to get some books done that I've been commissioned to do. Then I get to spend the rest of December working on family calendars. Yah! Not really. I won't say I hate making them because hate is a strong word. But I will say I don't like to make them but I love to see one hanging on the wall at my house and also my family's houses. 

Anyway, my card today features a Tim Holtz train stamp that I stamped onto Strathmore watercolor paper with black Hero Arts ink. Then I added some blue ink to the top  of the paper with the image on it and green ink to the bottom. I like the way distress inks make the whole thing more of a scene. 

The clouds of the train have been enhanced with some Liquid Pearls in white. Not a ton of Liquid Pearls but just enough to look at it twice or maybe even run your finger across it to feel if it has texture or not. The background paper is by Die Cuts with a View. The gears border is a die by Tim Holtz in black Recollections cardstock. I made the sentiment with the Lawn Fawn alphabet stamps called Harold and stamped it with white pigment ink by Stampin Up. I also set an eyelet by Making Memories in front of the sentiment.

Thanks for looking. your stamps {Train and sentiment}
