Vintage Travel

Another one of Damian's stamps I have had to use this week - the Crafty Individuals "All Round the World" especially as I found a challenge blog -  Vintage Artisans and their theme was "Travel". My card is an 8x8 cream scalloped card.

The side panel was embossed and inked with a combo of Aged Mahogney, Faded Jeans and Walnut Stain.  The Big Ben die is from Marianne Design and I have highlighted this with white gel pen.

My lady and gent are Indigo Blu stamps and these have been water coloured with the same distress inks above.  The sentiment "Let the Adventure Begin" is an Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) stamp.

The tickets are from the Labels & Tickets new stamps from Marianne Design.

The hot air ballon image has been coloured using distress inks and glossy accents to the balloon for dimension.


As well as the Vintage Artisans Travel challenge I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-



As a postscript I just wanted to add my thanks to all the ladies over at Make My Monday.  They have been a fabulous group to work alongside for over 12-months and it was not an easy decision to step down from their DT.  Family and work life are very unsettled at the moment and something had to give but I am missing them and hope to play along with their challenges when they return in September - as just playing is good for the state of my mind lol:)   Suzanne ~x~
