Make My Monday: Travel/Vacation

Good morning.  Today's Challenge at Make My Monday is Travel/Vacation.  I created this card using the Sheena Douglass stamps that were free with a recent edition of Papercrafter Magazine (I have to confess that I bought the magazine just for these stamps!) 

I made the front of the card using the emboss resist technique.  I repeatedly stamped the compass rose in Versamark Ink, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I inked over it using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink, and finally splashed some water over it.  I did the Bon Voyage sentiment in the same way. 

The porthole is another stamp from the set.  I stamped it, coloured it with Promarkers,  then cut it out using circle embossing dies.  I cut a circular aperture in the front of the card, then stuck the porthole around the aperture.

I added a die cut anchor to match my red border.

To create the  inside of the card.  I cut a square of red card to match the border on the front of the card and stamped the ship onto a circle of card.  I coloured it using Polychromos pencils, then layered it onto a blue circle and stuck it on.

I hope you can join us this week at Make My Monday
