Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Yes, that's the challenge theme at FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGES but it could be any form of transport.  This vintage style card has Crafty Individuals' stamp CI-325 as the main image.

I used a cream shimmer card blank as the base, matted with a piece of mulberry coloured swiss dotted paper.  Using a piece of cream mat card, sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Gingerbread, I cut another smaller mat and stamped CI-255 Clocks and Watches in Tea Dyed Distress Ink, then inked round the edges to age the card.  

Onto this I matted the car image stamped onto the same sprayed cream card using Vintage Photo DI, then added a die cut frame using the swiss dotted card and the Cricket Elegant Edges cartridge.  The centre from the frame was added at the bottom and finished with a few dots of Stickles in Copper.
