goes the engine as it fires up.

Plane topper came from a (shop) birthday card Andrew received, love the bronze colouring on it.
Darker backing paper is from Hot Off The Press - Soft Nostalgia collection
Lighter backing paper from one of the Nitwits collections
Stamp from Papermania's urban range

Stamped first with a black pigment ink, then over stamped with encore's bronze ink to give it a slightly smudged look, (also rubbed the bronze ink round the paper edges) embellished with peel offs, small metallic studs, a couple of teeny tiny bronze gems, string dipped in cold tea and a green button.

Love the result.

Have entered this card into:

vintage elusions - men & machines/anything goes
