FSC - Modes Of Transport

Good morning my friends.

It's time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. The theme this time is 'Modes Of Transport' and was chosen by Dani. I decided make 'Cruising' the theme for my card. I really enjoyed making it and I hope that you like it too. 


I started by stamping the background randomly with a Nautical stamp that I've had for years by The Stampman. I then dusted around the edge, first with Distress Tea Dye and then Memento Teal Zeal.

The torn off pieces at the back of the collage were made using Starburst Stains which I painted on the card and the I sprinkled with rock salt to create a weathered look. I then used another stamp from the Nautical set to add the text and I used the full stamp to create the piece of text used in the collage. The tag is one that I had intended to use on the front of the card but that it just wasn't right, so rather than waste it, I added it as part of the collage and I think it works really well.

The Vintage Voyage stamp and the Film Strip stamps are both by Inkylicious. The inks that I've used to stamp and colour the images are: Versafine Black Onyx, Distress Tea Dye and Memento Teal Zeal. 

We would love you to join us in this challenge but please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so please don't use digital images or too many die cuts, just good old fashioned stamping, and lots of it!

My wonderful teamies have made some amazing inspirational pieces so please pop over to their blogs and take a look if you get the chance.  All their details can be found here, or at the Fashionable Stamping Challenges web site, along with the rules for the challenge.

We are as always, very generously sponsored by Leo over at Flonz Craft and one lucky random winner will receive a $20 voucher to be used online.  There will also be a Top 3 spotlight, chosen by the Design Team,

Wishing you all a wonderful day x

A super creation for this months theme Sandra, like how you have carried the stamping through right from the base layer and them intensified the colours as you worked to the focal element.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

A fabulous card Sandra, love the focal image and lots of interest with the layers. Thanks for the prompt about the Starburst Stains, I've got some languishing in the drawer somewhere - they do give a great vintage look.
