I've had the World Map stamp on my wish list since it was first available in the last catalog, but it wasn't until I saw the new Traveler set that I knew I just had to have it! Here is my first card using both of these.
The Traveler set will be available from the new catalog in just a couple weeks. It's a great set with realistic, vintage pen and ink renderings perfect for creating manly cards. I watercolored this image of the globe using my aqua painter and classic inks.
The World Map background was colored simply by sponging...I used a combination of Sponge Daubers and Stampin' Sponges. The Sponge Daubers made it easier to get along the edges of there the water meets land...but the bigger sponges made it much quicker...so the combination worked well. The sentiment was printed on my computer onto Lost Lagoon card stock. I also used another new In Color...Mossy Meadow for the base and mat for the globe. I really love working with these new colors!
This past week while making room for my new colors and finding a spot for retiring items I ended up on a re-organizing frenzy! So far I've reorganized my 12 x 12 card stock, 8-1/2 x 11 card stock and all my DSP. When I say, "all of it" I mean not only my SU! DSP, but everything from other companies as well. I've "collected" a lot of it with future scrapbook pages in mind. I even found some really old single sided papers (remember when paper only had one side???) that I don't know what I was thinking when I purchased them! lol Hopefully I'll have some clean and reorganized workspace photos to share soon.
Have a great day!
