One careful Lady Driver


'Planes, Trains and Automobiles. is our first Challenge of the year  over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
I hope you will pop over for all the details and see what my design team sisters have been making.
Please remember we like to see some stamping in your challenge entry.

I have made this card using  images  from The Artistic Outpost  Diesel Punk set.
I just wonder if this little lady will keep to the speed limit driving her car.
One of the background layers  was  stamped in a variety of stamps from the set
Two layers  were  dry embossed with a wheels , cog and time plate. All the colouring is Distress inks, tumbled glass, vintage photo and walnut stain.
The base layer of the card is covered with an old map.

I will also be entering the Artistic Outpost January Referral Program  which is Anything Goes,  using their stamps.

Thank you for stopping by your comments are always appreciated.
