Right now, we’re in the middle of school holidays in Melbourne. I’m staying put at home but many of my friends are roaming far and wide. Some local but lots are escaping to Europe where it’s a little bit warmer than here. Perhaps that’s where my inspiration for this card has come from.

Sometimes, I start off with one thing in my head and the finished product is completely different. This was one of those projects! I loved the colour palette and was leaning towards a travel theme so of course the Next Destination stamp set was a great good option.

Colour Palette #15

I picked the map style sheet from the Let’s go Fishing Designer Series Paper and blended over it with Smoky Slate ink. The Pecan Pie Cardstock strips were originally going to be cut flush to create the background. However, after I had glued the strips down and saw the overhang, I really liked the look and just trimed the ends at varying angles.

The Smoky Slate Cardstock underneath was blended with Smoky Slate ink as was the card matte. This gave it a darker tone which brought out the focal images.

The images were coloured with ink refills and a Blender Pen. As I had stamped the images on Basic White Cardstock I was careful not to oversaturate the images when colouring them in. Alternately, you could use Fluid 100 Cardstock but this worked well for me.

I added the campervan as it was in keeping with my travel theme and it’s so CUTE! These images reflect the sentiment so well. No matter where you are and what you are doing – explore and dream. It leads to discovery of new and wonderful things.
