Canvas Club * 1st Swap

Yep you guessed it, yet another canvas, well i cant help it there addictive lol

This is the first, hopefully of many, canvas swaps.
Made especially for Hels
It is extreamly relevant to her as, if you've a regular to her blog you will know she is a Train driver.
I used vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks for the background, along with an expresso dabber and some distress embossing powders also in vintage photo. I tore a piece of Tim Holtz paper for one corner covered in glossy accents, added several junkitz tiles also using Tim's paper and glossy accents to stick. The largest of which i stamped the front bit of a train using black stazon. I used a model railway line, some old scrabble tiles and a rub-on (which i peeled from the backing and stuck on with matt accents), i finished by using an Invoke art stamp "ticket to ride" in the corner and all round the edges of the canvas, and added a metel train to the bottom corner. I am quite please with how it came out and hope Hels will be too.

And in keeping with the theme i also did a little card.

Very basic, just cut a square of Tim's paper, glossy accented the train and added a acetate verse i printed.
