Travel

Good evening, well we've had beautiful weather and a fab weekend! Hope you all have too?
Tonight's make was inspired by a free book of road maps we got with our paper today, hope you like it.
I used 8x8 craft card base, layered with some Tim Holtz paper Lost and found pad, I tore a page out if free book inked edges with old paper DI, the postcard is from Creative Ex stamp set and the tickets also CE but steampunk set, I stamped in black ink, inked with old paper DI, the tickets I scrumpled them up and inked very lightly over the creases with black soot DI, the topper is from the Portabello Rd set, I stamped the bus first, masked it, then the Taxi, masked that then stamped Big Ben and masked that, I then used the large union flag by Indigoblu, which I inked up using whispers brush markers, then huffed on them to stamp, I coloured the images with Spectrum Noir's,I finished off drawing freehand a wobbly frame twice just to make the image stand out! Voila! I'm entering this ard into http://alteredelusionsandartitude.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme is Travel.
