Mark's Finest Papers

train talkJENFINALFINALWATERMARKTrain talk stamp set is another one that is good for masculine cards as well as everyday styles.  For my card I did the 3D technique using Spellbinders Nestabilities scallop ovals.  The background is Sizzix swirls texture fade.  Dabbed Colorbox white pigment ink on the folder itself then ran black cardstock through Big Kick machine.  Thought it gave the effect of smoke from the train.  what do you think?
Don't forget to visit the other design team blogs and leave comments to be included in drawing for one of the new stamp sets.
Well, this is the end of my first blog hop with Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps! a Heinrich Company.  Hope you liked what you saw here and on all the blogs.  I had fun doing the hop and look forward to the next one.
