I made this card for a friend at work at her request. She wants to give it to someone. I printed the inside saying, then using a mask cut out the front so that the word Steam showed through. I stamped the railroad tracks with Old Olive. I colored the train in with colored pencils, and pop dotted both the cow catcher (bottom part) and the stack and light (at the top). I used a brass fastener on the light. I used a cotton ball to make the steam coming out of the stack. The silver paper below the train is going gray card stock sprayed with silver pearl ex and hair spray. The engine and caboose below are stamped in basic black, but I colored the smoke coming out of the stack on this one a silver color, as black smoke coming out of the train stack is bad, so wanted it to look realistic like the trains we engineer at work. I love how the cotton ball really makes it look like steam,and it is so soft to touch!
