Traveler Locomotive with a Color and Sketch Challenge :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!

I am trying to catch up my postings for my blog and will be sharing several cards throughout the day that I have created for the Splitcoaststampers' Dare To Get Dirty Challenges as well as a few for some of my favorite online challenges. 

This card was created for The Paper Players Claire's PP257 Color Challenge using the RetroSketches RS176 Challenge (love both of these weekly challenge sites!) :-)

Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their challenge galleries!

This card was fairly easy to create but took a bit of time with the layering.

Stamp the locomotive image from Stampin' Up! Traveler using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, watercolor with an AquaPainter™ along with Bermuda Bay and Old Olive Classic Ink, add color to the train using the Stampin' Write Crumb Cake marker, die cut the image and mount onto cardstock layers, emboss a few pieces of cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Folder, create some banners with the Banner Punch and layer onto Basic Black banners (also created with the banner punch), add the sentiment using the Hexagon Punch for the banner points and finish by layering all to the card front.

Stamp Sets: Traveler, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive; Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker

Paper: Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Old Olive; Typeset Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Big Shot™,  Square Collection Framelits™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, AquaPainter™, Punches- Banner (for banners), Hexagon (for sentiment banner), Envelope Punch Board (for corner rounder);  Natural Linen Thread, Pearls, retired Antique Copper Hodgepodge Hardware Clip (still have a bunch of this in stock-lol!)

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope all of you enjoy the rest of the week!
