New Adventures

 Hi Everyone

Today is the turn of Stampotique and NEW ADVENTURES 

I was firstly a bit messy by swooshing a tag into some cosmic shimmer sprays, then used water and distress inks to add colour into the white areas of the tag making it look like sky and earth.

I then took a 'Sheena ' branch stamp and made a tree, and took my hobby art stamps and made trees, hills and grass with Stazon Black ink.

I then took my Stampavie 'caravanette' stamp and stamped this out onto different coloured card and paper pieced it.  I thought Moth Fab would love having 'adventures' in this!

I then took 'Moth Fab' stamped her out in versamark and heat set with WOW ebony embossing powder and coloured her in with Promarkers.

The suitcase is a very old stamp which I had. The 'leather look' was made by applying stick glue to a dotty stamp then stamping onto a piece of white cardstock, then using walnut stain distress ink and sponging this on the card over the glue before stamping in versamark and heat setting with Ebony Embossing Powder. The glue picks up the ink and makes it darker and a 'suede' look in places - try it. 

The sentiment is brill,  I got it off the Internet and printed it onto patterned cardstock and cut out.   

"Make everything
an adventure.
it will suck.

it makes me want to go with her.....
