Metal Machine

It's a glorious day here with the sun shining and one crocus out. We've been out for a walk and now I'm multi-tasking - watching the Olympics, the Rugby and crafting too!   Here's a quick card for the Less is More Challenge week 160 where the recipe is METAL.  The link is to the challenge is  here.

I've used a new stamp from Crafty Individuals CI-404  - I saw it and thought it'd come in useful as my DH is a Railway Engineer.  The sentiment was a freebie stamp that came with it and the background is the Checkerplate from Kaisercraft stamped with Archival Manganese Blue.  I've just added a little blue tint to the engine and a silver metal cog.

Hope you like and thanks for looking.  I'm off to see what everyone else has created!!

  8. My husband is a steam train enthusiast and would love this card. I like it too, the vintage looking train goes well with the more contemporary background, it really works well.
