Building up the background with the map, postage stamps, post mark and butterflies in the same way.
Then I stamped the lady on the bicycle and the airship from the Grand Tour I with the first generation of ink, to get a darker impression, along with a couple of stamps and tickets to balance out the design.
I blended Brushed Corduroy Distress ink around the edges to give the frame some age, and keep the vintage feel.
Carefully using the frame as a guide I then stamped one of the sentiments from the Grand Tour II set using Black Archival ink directly onto the centre of a 6" square card.
I stamped around the edge of the card using the map stamp and second generation stamping with the Potting Soil ink, followed by Brushed Corduroy Distress ink around the edge. I added the frame using foam pads along with a butterfly left over from another project, cut out from a scrap piece of Floral Fantasy Mixed Media Card Stack and painted with White Gee Sso Good.
See you soon
