Take the train!

Hi everyone! I have some new stamps and could hardly wait to use this one!
It was my son's 39th birthday this week...really???

I made a card by using paint and ink in the same colours. They are old Ranger Jenny Bowlin ones and the shade is called Soap Powder!
I used a baby wipe to add the paint across the page - fading to create a lighter bottom. I then added the stamping which created further shade contrast.
The stamp is an AALL and create stamp #76 designed by Bipasha - so many lovely little elements all in one stamp! I added little parts from the stamp and also a little Denim stamp.

I am entering the challenges at:-

Simon Says Stamp Monday - 'Ombre'

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - 'For The Boys'

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh Chris, I am so glad I ordered this stamp, I didn't realise it had a train on at first... love your card, your ombre has worked beautifully and the 'buildings' in the back look amazing and create so much depth! 39 is not bad, mine is 50 - yikes, where did all that time go! Hugs, Anne xx
