Classic wheels!

Yes the Sunday Stamper Challenge numero '305' is all about wheels....well I struggled with this at first because I couldn't think of any stamps I had that had wheels....cogs and gears yes...but wheels? Well as you can see I did find a mini stamp and along with the sentiment it's probably one of the most iconic stamp images.........which meant it had to be a tag.

I decided to try out distress paints which I haven't used before and used broken china and crushed olives. Liked the effect, the cogs and gears are from IndiogoBlu. The main image is embossed into clear UTEE on cardboard having put a swoosh of distress paint underneath the image. There is also some tarnished brass distress paint and Treasure gold (of course). BTW I did also find a pram and a rickshaw so I did have a few more options. Thanks for stopping by.

Updated.... meant to add that I have been trying out distress paints so I can play along with the CC3C challenge being hosted here but I have another week to submit something 'marbled' so watch this space!....2nd update..after Hels comment I am going to enter this via the link into the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge at  after all.....I can always submit another next week!
