Vintage Illusions - Creative Expressions

A very early good morning to you all

I just wanted to get this posted before heading to bed.  I know I will have a couple of cards posting later today for DT inspirations so thought I best get this one in now LOL.  I used my Vintage illusions stamps for this very simple card.  This will be going to a train enthusiast I know.  The background is a collage of all the stamps from the sheet with the train being the centre stage.  I used brown memento ink with clear embossing powder for the main part and clear for the background.  i then heavily distressed it all using Vintage photo.  Well hows that for speedy post LOL.  Anyway I am outta here now my bed is calling.

PS one more day til my DT call ends for Eclectic Ellapu.

  2. The embossing and distressing highlight the train image wonderfully. I love trains - my father was a railroad man. Thanks for sharing this bit of nostalgia with Jackson's Digital Expressions.

  3. I am such a sucker for vintage and your card just pulled me right on in. I love the distressing and the colors that have old vintage look to it. Overall I think your card is awesome. Thank you for playing with us at JDE and good luck.
