Planes, Trains and Automobiles

As you can see I have been ferretting in the drawer again. This time I found a piece of map paper and some travel themed cigarette cards.
Got the distressing inks out again for the map and grunged the cards with a Stazon pad in Timber Brown. Layered the cards onto some brown card and trimmed to leave just a tiny edge showing to frame the picture. Added some of the fabby gear die cuts and then die cut the letters from mountboard, distressed them by covering in ink and then spraying with bleach while the ink was wet. Once dried I added Glossy Accents.
It needed a little something so I drew the arrows onto some reddish brown card and cut them out.
I need to do some more prep work when I get home from the shop tomorrow ready for the weekend but after I have done I think I’ll have another play and do something with a bit more colour in it seeing as I have posted three brown cards in row. Obviously just felt like being a grungy girl these past couple of days…….lol!!!
Well I am off to tidy up. If I clear the decks now I will be able to get the prep done quicker which gives me more time to play……eeeeeeh I’m not as daft as I look!!!
Edited…….I forgot to say that the layout of the card is based on a Becky Fleck sketch from April 2005. I need to practice with sketches as I am not very good at them so tend not to do them when they come up as challenges. Think I still need a bit more practice though.
