Masculine Oldie!

Good Evening Everyone, I decided to wait until tonight to stamp...I REALLY needed to get my house clean! My least favorite thing in the world but with 3 kids home and all my wonderful animals..I have to clean more than normal. So today was the day to get "scrubbin"!!! My card I did today is for a friend of mine, she needed a card for her I thought the LSC226, challenge at Splitcoast Stampers worked perfect. We were to pick planes, trains, or automobiles and they had color choices and choice of embellies. I chose the brown and green combo and twine and hardware for embellies. This card is "Way out of my element" but I really liked how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak tonight!!
Here's the recipe
Misc. unmounted stamp from Inky Antics - I stamped in Momento Ink, stamped it twice cut it out to pop it up. I colored the image with copics, the wheels I did with gamsol and a black prisma pencil. The car accents I used gel pens.
I Inked the edges with Mellow Moss and used SU distressing tool
Mellow Moss Cardstock
Setiment from Darcies stamped in Chocolate Chip
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Outlaw Designer Paper from SU
SU Twine and Misc. Twine (thicker stuff)
Charm that was recieved from a SCS friend (Thanks so much Pat)
