Age of Steam by Deborah

I coloured a square of white card with a Lime Zest ProMarker, then inked over it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink using a piece of cut n dry foam. After drying it with a heat gun, I stamped the train and words from IndigoBlu Grand Tour III plus the clouds from Creative Expressions Create-A-Scene Coastal in Jet Black Archival Ink. I coloured the train with a Berry Red ProMarker and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain. The clouds were coloured with a Tea Green ProMarker, topped with Faded Jeans Distress Stain. Then I went over the Lime Zest with Wild Honey Distress Stain. Lastly, I edged the card with a Black ProMarker.

I mounted it onto light card that had been run through an embossing folder and coloured with Bundled Sage and Barn Door Distress Stain and Black Soot Distress Ink. I then mounted this onto a black card that had been spattered with paint when I’d been painting something else. I folded and cut it into a card blank.

I attached two tickets from Tim Holtz At the Movies Stamp Set, that were coloured with Distress Stains, with a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini Fastener. They looked too big for the card, so I tore them and glued the torn parts on separately.



  1. Wow! It's really atmospheric and I love the different layers of stamping, embossing etc. Love steam trains as they are so stylish and this really appeals to me.

  2. Brilliant card... not a square millimetre without some gorgeous colour, texture or atmospheric detail.
