Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #9 - Train's A Comin'

Hi everyone,
Today's post is for the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge this week.  I had heaps of fun putting this card together, it is the first time I have used Stampin' Up!'s Choo Choo Set.  After using the wheel to make the tracks I stamped the train twice, once in black on the main image area and again on some extra card in red.  The main parts of the train were cut out and are mounted on dimensionals.  The clouds were sponged with Bashful Blue around a scallop circle punch out and in between the tracks  in Going Grey and on the front edge in Old Olive.
Stamps: S/U's Choo Choo S/S, Vintage Labels, Right on Track Standard Wheel, Weathered Background stamp
Card: Chocolate Chip, Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Stazon Black, Going Grey, Bashful Blue and Old Olive 
Embellishments: Antique Bronze Brads
Tools: Small and Large Oval Punches, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Sponges, Dimensionals, Scalloped Circle Punch for the clouds, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Scallop Edge Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch (R)
Thanks for stopping by today.
