Mans Card - Steam Engine

Using distress ink brushed corduroy I sponged a piece of white card making the ink deeper at the edges and I stamped the image with the same distress ink, using a brown ink pen I grounded the image by adding a shadow under the wheels.
The brown card base was embossed with a swiss dots cuttlebug folder then a gold ink pad rubbed over the top.

Superb card. Love the colours. I like the idea of colouring under the wheels to 'ground' it. I might try that.
