Train Card

Heck - another card from me today - this one inspired by a demo Joanna Sheen did on C&C yesterday. Once again stamped image from Joanna's Country Life Stamps, coloured in with promarkers, mounted on red card and silver mirri.   Three panels cut from cream pearlescent card and cross-scored with Hougie Board, then edged with red promarker.   Note to self here (and a tip) - in future edge the card before scoring - saves the colour from appearing to bleed where the score lines are!)   Panels mounted on silver mirror and ribbon attached. 

I suppose I should have done the panels again, but confess I really didn't want to waste more precious pearlescent card!  Fortunately it is for a family member, and I shall say it is "new look" distressing!

I know what you mean about Milton! He does look a tad thoughtful doesn't he? Might even make a good Get Well Soon too! xx
