Challenge 31 Maps

Hi there, was nearly too late ...this is my entry for a lovely challenge on 'Maps/Cartography' at the Artful Times  blog and over there you can also see lots of fabulous projects for this theme.

Used tumbled glass distress stain on a stamp I made myself to give a border. The stamp was excess rubber cut away from a stamp and coated with some texture gel to give this effect.

Did a light covering with turquoise shade Pan Pastel over card and then stamped map with  black archival ink. Map was a Papermania Urban stamp called 'All aboard'.
Printed and cut out the 'MAP' letters with a black outline around them which I created on my computer and then stamped them also with the map stamp. Added some distress stains in Tumbled glass, Scattered straw and Shabby shutters.

Stamped car and travel word - both from IndigoBlu set called 'Grand Tour1' in black archival ink.

I stamped over the original border using the stamp I made with black archival ink lightly rubbed over it, so wasn't too heavy.

Stamped and cut out watch by 'Cherry Pie' and inked with distress stains.
Used distress inks randomly around edges in Scattered straw and Walnut stain.
When everything stuck down used Quickie glue pen and gold foil on corners, letters, car and watch.
