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:
