Around the World: Anything Goes #69

Well it's time again for a new challenge from Anything Goes and its anything to do with Travel. The DT have really done themselves proud and there's plenty of variety and inspiration to help your mojos! (if you need it).

My project is a card using the IndigoBlu stamp, Wish you were here, which I bought from the Craft Den, in fact all the items used on this card are available from the Craft Den.


I love this image and as it represents a picture postcard  that was the theme I used for my card. I have a very old stamp plate which, I am ashamed to admit, I have hardly used but it  includes a postcard stamp and a postal stamp, unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the stamp company.

The background was done with the script stamp from the Sarah's Choice plate from IndigoBlu using the embossing powder resist technique  then blended with DIs. Six postcards were stamped and aged with DIs and in a sort of random fashion adhered to the background, hopefully to look as if they have landed on the doormat!

Glossy card was coloured with alcohol inks and softened with blending solution, then stamped with the Wish You were Here stamp, stamped around the edge with the postal stamp and mounted onto brown cardstock. A Creative Expressions sentiment stamp, vintage bakers twine and a little suitcase charm added the finishing touches.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
