A "LOVE" Train for a couple Challenges!! =)

Pin It


Stopping in really FAST to share a SWEET little Valentine's Day Card I made for SWEET Beckett!! He has ALWAYS Loved trains and when I saw this Penny Black Mimi's Playground Stamp Set, I knew it was the PERFECT set for for me!! =)  I even got it for a steal at Joann's with my 50% coupon which makes it even more PERFECT!! I thought it would be FUN to use my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Water Color it as if it were a painting!! I stamped it in Black VersaFine Ink on some Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Paper and I just LOVE the Results!! I colored it in and then I went over some of the areas with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen after I used a white gel pen to add some areas in white and added some depth of light!! Then to make it even more FUN I added some 3mm wiggly eyes!! I really LOVE the way these add life to this Sweet Image!! I die cut some Scalloped edges and then I die cut the Penny Black I LOVE YOU Die from some WPlus9 Black Cardstock and added it to the bottom of my card!! I just know he is going to LOVE this card and it will hold a SPECIAL place on his shelf as a reminder of how much I LOVE him and his LOVE for Trains!! Here it is in all it FUN-NESS!! =)

Hopefully you can see the shimmer of the Wink of Stella and how much depth and FUN it adds to the Image!!??
Isn't it just going to be PERFECT for Valentine's Day!!??
