Choo Choo


This cute train is part of a set of stamps from the Occasions Mini which will be available for ordering on April 1. Isn't this the cutest, so cute for a little boy's birthday or for a little boys room decor. Also, the theme for our Vbs this year is Boomerang Express and I plan on doing a lot with the train theme there. Don't look too closely at my clouds, this is my first attempt. The train track is also a wheel that is in the Mini.

I love this!! How do you do the clouds and grass? I know you use a sponge but wow this looks great!

For the grass, I just used a sponge dauber and ink and kept adding ink to the paper until I was satisfied with the color, I tried to make some areas darker than others. For the clouds, I used a scallop punch as a mask and sponged around it moving it to vaious parts of the sky.
