Enjoy the Journey embossing

Challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards-male card
Creative Craft World-travel/holiday
Sketch Saturday-sketch
Creative Craft Challenges 2-distressing
I used Tim Holtz stamps for this entire card. And distress inks. I stamped the background, its a small stamp I just repeated it many times, with ranger embossing ink and then used clear embossing powder. I then rubbed ink, mustard seed, tumbled glass and peeled paint, all over the card. I love the effect. I stamped everything in these three colors. The car is stamped in peeled paint then clear embossing over the top.
