A step back in time

I recently got a set of alchol inks and I couldn't resist having a play with them, especially when I saw these stamps.

To make this card I first embossed a piece of silver foil with the Cuttlebug cog embossing folder, then I used red, blue and yellow alcolhol ink with a bit of blending solution to ensure it didn't turn out to bright, and inked the foil until I was happy with the effect.

On a piece of silver matt card I stamped the car in black ink. On red card I stamped enjoy the journey again in black ink. I cut both of these out. Then with the remaining red card I cut out a scalloped circle and two strips, which were cut to a point at one end, These were then outlined in a silver marker pen.

To construct the card I backed the foil onto red card and cut it out leaving a small border, I then folded a A4 piece of plain white card in half and added the foil to this. I then fixed the two red strips and circle on top of the foil. Placing the car in the circle and enjoy the journey on the strips.
