Steampunk Locamotive

Hello!  Back with another card for consideration for the soon to be launched Inkspirational Challenge.  This time, we are working with the Color Challenge below of Olive, Sky Blue and Suede.
As I considered what direction to go with my card, I decided the colors lent themselves to a masculine card.  I selected a clip art image from Crafty Individuals that included the colors in the color challenge as my spring board.  Several stamp plates by Sam Poole were chosen to complement the clip art image.  The stamped images were stamped with Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and were distressed with Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo DI and matted with blue and brown card stock and layered to the card front.  Olive Burlap String purchased at the Funkie Junkie Boutique was wrapped around the card front.  Copper liquid pearls and a wheel charm were included for a bit of contrast.  You have until November 30, if you want to be considered for the Design Team.  I think it will be a very interesting DT of which to be a part.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
