Welcome to this week's brand new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog, which is all about TRANSPORTATION!
So whether you are thinking trains, planes, automobiles or even a boat ~ how are you getting around these days? Whether inspired by the metal and gears or wanting to create a steampunk jalopy ~ this week team member Anna-Karin challenges you to be inspired by transportation!
For my project, I wanted to whisk you back to days gone by and create this vintage themed burlap using a sleigh ride through a cold an icy winter's as my inspiration. As always, I hope you love what I've created and enjoy reading how I made this piece!
I cut a piece of Manila card to measure 6" x 4" and swiped the card through some Tumbled Glass, Picket Fence and Brushed Pewter Distress Stains applied to my craft sheet and then spritzed with water. Once I'd picked up all the stain, I heat dried the card and then went back to the residue stain on my sheet to pick up any small droplets. When I was happy with the background and it was thoroughly dry, I then added some texture paste through the Snow Fall stencil and allowed this to dry.
I stamped the sleigh ride image directly onto my inked background before mounting the completed card onto a piece of paper that I distressed and machine stitched around the edge, taken from the Wallflower Paper Stash. This works beautifully as a vintage background.
I added the snowflakes and foliage to my panel and added some real moss, a Tidings Token, twine and decorative pins to the arrangement. As a final touch I placed a couple of mirrored stars amongst it.
Don't forget that if you're looking for some more great ideas and inspiration for this challenge, then you need to look no further than the blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
