I've always loved trains and when the new Train Talk set came out I literally jumped for joy.  After stamping the silhouette image in memento tuxedo black ink onto white storm before stippling several inks over and around the image to resemble a sunrise.  Once I was satisfied with the ink coverage and my image was layered, I added some Making Memories black baby brads before stamping a border using the train tracks from the On Track mini set.  My final embellishment was to die cut a couple of gears using Tim Holtz Bigz Gadget Gears die.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by all of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
