Darkroom Door - Old Truck

I have a card to show you today sung a Photo Stamp by Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps - these images make fabulous cards that also happen to come together so quickly.
This image is called Old Truck and really says it all.

I coloured it using the Crayon Resist Technique that was being demonstrated by the Owner and artist of Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps, Rachel Greig.  I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel and seeing her demonstrate this technique, you can see some photos here  


The cogs are from the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets Shapeabilitie and has been cut using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.


The background embossing has been done using the Tim Holt Embossing Folder and has has Distressing Ink run over it.  The sentiment is from a Paper Chic stamp set illustrated by Cristina re - this has been heat embossed with Bronze Embossing Powder.  Old gold brads add the finish touch.

This card is for the following challenges:

Artistic Stampers - Men/All things male themed
The Craft Garden - Bold, bright and loud
365 Cards -  Vintage and red
Cards For Men - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by today - it always makes my day to see you!  I have been busy creating, my mind is full and spinning after fours days at the Craft and Quilt Fair - it is such fun getting it all out and onto paper - I will be back tomorrow with some more to show you - in the meantime I am working on some other projects to show you in the near future - it is 'all go' here and I am loving it - it is a tough job, but someone has to do it!  LOL!  God bless you!
