The Engineer - Mo Manning Image

It is Jim Harker's Birthday on Friday and I was dreading making him a card until I stumbled across this digi stamp by Mo Manning.
Jim is the Artist I work with at La Pashe, as you can imagine making a card for an artist is some mean task "but" as Jim is just crazy about trains and steam this image made it oh, so easy.
I coloured the image with Promarkers.


Attention to detail...

I used buttons and a leather twine to embellish the card. The background paper is one by K&Co which is all about railways and the stamping on the cream is a Steam Engine made by Personal Impressions.



This is what I did for the insert

Fingers crossed that Jim doesn't pop onto my blog.
