The Engineer...

Hi everyone!  What has happened to the weather?!  Autumn has crept up and slapped us in the face - we've had terrrible winds (not me personally!) and torrential rain for most of the afternoon...anyone would think I lived in Wales!?! LOL!!

Anyhow, I've been really naughty today and spent a couple of hours creating, just for fun...well, for a couple of challenges, anyway.  (The boys were off school, thanks to the teachers strikes and I never seem to get much done when they're off, as there's always something else needing doing!)  I absolutely love the image that I've used on tonight's card, it's called The Engineer and it's by Mo Manning...
...it took me a while to figure out how to colour this one to get all the layers decoupaged, but I am really pleased with the end result...
...I used 5 layers overall to give more dimension to the image, I just hope that the photos show it, as I have to say it really is 3D in the flesh!...
...I created a pocket card with cross-over front, the sentiment panel has the image attached to it and removes from the card...
...I wanted the card to stand up, so I cut a stand in one of the cards that attached together...
...I created the tickets in PS and added a metal train charm and screwhead brad.  The edges of all the papers and image were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I am really chuffed (ha, ha, get it?!) with the way this one has turned out, especially my image, hope you like it too!  Thanks for popping by and see you soon!  Lisa X
