I'm trying to keep up with the trends in the paper crafting world this year. The first one I'm onto is maps! I've created this card for a challenge over at "Moxie Fab World" because I couldn't resist a good challenge! Especially one that's on trend.
I've used all things Tim Holtz (or Lord Tim as he's affectionately known in my circle). The papers are from his 12x12 collection. The map was too dark to stamp on, so I've inked it up with Picket Fences stain and then heat-set it (twice). Then I've used one of his fab edge dies (Bless) and stamped it with one of my new fave stamps by Unity. Have you seen their Smash Kits? Wow. I adore them! Then I spritzed it all with some Glimmer Mist in Heirloom Gold and further distressed the paper a little.
I used the car & arrow die set in the base tray to punch out with the same Tim Holtz designer paper. I've inked the edges with some distress ink (antique photo) and sprited with the Glimmer Mist in Heirloom Gold again.
Et voila! An homage to maps.
