Transportation


Fond memories...this reminds me so much of my Grandfather....although I don't know if he knew how to ride a bike, I know he looked a lot like this man. He would get "dressed up" in his straw hat and cane, and come to visit us. This stamp is way cool by I Brake for Stamps . Just stamp and mount! It's perfect for ATC's, tags, cards or whatever, and of course makes for a very masculine card. My image is stamped in Memories Art Print Brown Ink, a great ink to use for images like this. Notice how clean and clear the image stamped. The background is hand stamped, and then distressed...then run through an embossing folder, distressed some more...?what better way to get your stress out! Why do you think they call it distressed!!! hugz again....
