Journey the World

One of the themes that I am into now is all the travel papers, ephemera and stamps that are available! Innovative Stamp Creations has a new stamp sheet Destination that has an awesome vintage map background stamp!

The sample that I made is a pocket card -Journey the World:

The world map was stamped on Vellum and then I used the faux parchment paper technique that can be found on Tim's blog here. The navigation piece has a base of grunge board that the image was stamped on and then, of course, sprockets, gears and spinners.

Here is a side view:

On the inside page the map is blended with color (I just use a small piece of the blending foam on blending tool to control the color). The little pocket for the ticket is vellum sewn on.

The ticket charm has a world stamped on grunge board and a type charm.

Hmmm maybe I should make a bigger one of these to put in my cruise album?

Thanks for the visit today and Happy Creating!
