Travel Card

Travel Card

Travel is on the mind of many.  This would make a great send off card for friends traveling.
The base card is a tan with Postcard Collage HF224G from Passport To Europe (PTE) p6 in black.  The light turquoise layer was also stamped with Postcard Collage using a watermark pad.  Next I stamped in black with London Cancellation UK102D PTE p20 and De Paris duo PR304G PTE p5.  Set aside and stamp Passport TP433E from PTE p5 and Ben UK102D PTE p20 on white card stock.  Color passport with Distress Inks (Fire Brick) and sponge. When dry cut them out.  Stamp Bon Voyage TP439E PTE p1 on a tag.  I used a vintage tag that I had stamped Old Neighbors TD031F from the Tattered Damask supplement p6 lightly in black or grey and then stamped the edges with Baroque Swirl TM317D from A Stitch in Time supplement p13 in a (Ochre shade).  If you would like a copy of this just send me an email and I will email you a copy of the stamped baggage ticket.  Stamp Bon Voyage TP439E p1 in PTE (the ship) on the tag with black.  Color with color pencils.  Cut it out and layer your card.  Happy travels

Garden Art

We were able to spend time this weekend out in the yard and it's so nice to see so many things in bloom.  Garden Art is a result of this inspiration.  I started with white card stock and stamped Butterfly Beauties FF523C.  A direct to paper method was used on a white piece of card stock for the yellow (any bright yellow you have will work) and then I used a Ranger sponge foam with a bright orange to sweep across the yellow.  Next a bit of walnut ink was lightly swept across and splattered across the surface (the yellow and walnut ink were swept from right to left).  After this has dried Garden Art FF256F was stamped in a juicy black.  Stamp script (the one I used is an up coming image) in white on black card stock.  Cut out 
the butterflies and pop-dot them over layers.  What a great spring card.  Enjoy!
