Numbers


Well I'm not convinced but Mr Virgin is suppose to be working properly so I'm making sure I schedule my posts while he's working.
Last week I missed out on a Less is More challenge my energy levels have disappeared and the thought of trawling through rather a lot of stash to find papers and ink to match the colour challenge sent them plummeting even farther. So I was determined that I was joining in this week and found it was a One Layer card YUCK.
Anyway the first thought when I saw it was Numbers was a train blowing them out and I wanted to do something fairly quick. Then I remember the Stampin Up train which has been long retired coloured in white on Kraft but decided to add a bit of red.
The numbers were tricky I had loads of small Alphabets but no numbers but eventually did find some. Added a Penny Black sentiment, they were all stamped in Versamark and then used white embossing powder.
Can I just add that my Bakers Twine is straight and I couldn't earth the train in case I made a mess of it.
