DoCrafts Stamps 'Travel print'
black pigment ink
dark burgundy card
Gecko Galz 'old world maps 1'
balloon from 'Steam Stock' digikit by Algera Designs
I used a 6x6 white card blank, using the Travel print stamp I stamped randomly over the front of the card - I used pigment ink as I wanted a faded effect rather than a prominent inked image as made by Stazon inks.
In craft artist I imported the map image and changed the colour to a brown tone, made the sentiment and then resized the balloon embellishment from a digi kit. Printed everything off then worked out the layout of the card. I mat/layered the map onto the burgundy card and likewise mat/layered the sentiment. Stuck everything down.
I stuck the balloon to a strip of acetate and attached that to the inside of the card, using the acetate as a hanging spring so the balloon hovered freely over the card.
To balance the card I raided The Tin (I really must get a photo of this button tin!) and picked 3 different ones and stuck them on the card.
