TRAVEL THE WORLD

I have used the GENERATION REDUX plate from Artistic Outpost this week to create a masculine card.
I have decorated the background of my card with background stamps from the Generation Redux plate stamping with Potting Soil Archival Ink and then colouring the background with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and flicking with water. I have also added touches of harlequin using the Harlequin Layering Stencil.
I have stamped the gentlemen onto white card, coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and flicked with water. I have also distressed the edges to add to the aged worn feel.
Label Letters have been used to add TRAVEL to my design along with Remnant Rubs words to add travel the world onto my clock. A Stencil Mark has been added to the top of the card, coloured with Alcohol Ink to age.
Items from Tim Holtz Ephemera have been added to give further layers of interest to my design.
For further interest I have included a letter 'T' for TRAVEL and a buckle for added dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
