Countdown to the Male Room

    This card is part of the countdown to a new challenge blog for male orientated cards and gifts called The Male Room. It goes live on Wednesday 31st July with 'Anything Goes'. There will be a fortnightly challenge with ideas to help inspire you to create something for the men in your life whatever age they may be.
    During the next few days the design team are showing a few ideas to get you ready for the first challenge, so please pop over and take a look. We would love it if you joined us on Wednesday for the grand opening.
    This card was inspired by a day out at a preserved steam railway with my family. Having grown up around these amazing engines, my Dad is a real steamaholic, I can't resist the erge to take loads of pictures. What better way to use some of these pictures than to make a card.
    It's a very simple card to put together too, having printed and cropped my pictures I matted them up on brown and cream ready to go on the card front.
    The card has been stamped with Versamark Ink and then chalked, the chalk has taken to the stamped area to show the image and also coloured the remaining card to tone in with the slightly vintage feel I was trying to achieve.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Here Come The Boys - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Transport
