Sunday Stampers - Week 11

Hels set this weeks Sunday Stampers challenge which this week is "Travel/Journey/ Transport. Basically, you can use any kind of stamp that features a mode of transport in or on which you could make a journey! This could be a train, car, hot air balloon, flying, sailing, biking or even rollerskating!!" Well I don't have any transport stamps so had to have a good think about this one .... I came up with this card as I figured that walking is a form of transport - hope this is okay.

I used my alcohol inks to make my background onto which I stamped my image. I used latte, ginger and caramel alcohol inks and then added just a touch of demin and then dabbed with a bit of ink out of my gold krylon pen. Once I was happy with the look of my background I spritzed it with some gold glimmer mist. I then stamped the Papgerbag Studio's stamp onto the background using an adirondack black ink pad. I then layered the image onto some green card, gold card and then some cream card and finally mounted this onto a light green A6 card. I added a little grungeboard heart which I coloured in gold using my krylon pen.
