Life and Times

This card has a different look to the others I made using Jayne's new stamps, I wanted to make a card for a man, as Father's Day is getting closer. As one of the stamps is an old tractor, a vintage look and so Distress Inks came into my head. I used some papers and accessories from a Teresa Collins kit called Vintage Finds that was on Create and Craft.
The image of the tractor was stamped in Walnut Stain onto a piece of patterned paper, then a fragment from Ranger was stuck over the top with a small amount of Glossy Accents applied around the edge only. Once dry I cut away the excess paper around the fragment and then mounted the piece onto my layered base card.
Tomorrow I'm off to help set up at Exel   and then three days demoing for Card-io. If your visiting the show then please be gentle with me. I love stamping, but this is a new experience. I'm enjoying this chance to play with something new.
Here's one of the cards I've made, other's I'll show at a later date.

Right back to work, need to make a few more, adding my take on these lovely useful stamps.
Happy Crafting
