Get the Map!

Hello Everybody!

This card placed in the Top 5 at Inkspirational!

I made a card for the Inkspirational Photo Challenge #24.  This is such a great picture.  I started out cutting a lighthouse on my Cricut.  And you know it just wasn't doing anything for me.  So I got out a new nautical stamp I bought at Hobby Lobby (love!) and some new distress ink from Joanne's (ok I have made the crafty rounds!).  And here is what I came up with...


My little boat is from a Fiskars set (I think).  All of the stamps on there are little so I had Tim Holtz's finger (hehe) it is a mover and shaker.  I colored it with black soot distress ink and then some rusty hinge and walnut stain.  Then I put some brass color distress stain over it.  It gave it this cool shimmer color.  I positioned the finger to point to the little boat so it wouldn't get lost in the "sea."  Oh also it's embossed with Ranger platinum embossing powder which seems to be really awesome.  I outlined it with black pen to make it stand out.


In red pen I drew the path and X marks the spot.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz and I used peacock feathers, dusty concorde, and mustard seed distress ink to color the sentiment box.  I used some gold paint T.H. paint dabber around the edges.  The map stamp is pretty big so I tore the edges around it.  I used black soot on the actual card then adhered the map.


Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...enjoy the journey! ;)
