Enjoy The Journey

An ATC this morning and this one draws inspiration from the May challenge over at the Graphicus Blog which is all about Travel and the colour Blue. They have a fab prize up for grabs but you need to get your entry in by the 31st May!

Details: I’ve used distress inks and a brayer to colour the background paper which was then stamped. The bicycle image was spotlighted with a bit of Stampbord coloured with alcohol inks, stamped with part of the image and then etched to show some highlights.

I have another project for you later – What two in one day? Well this one is for the Instyle Stamps blog hop and I am really excited to show you the cute image that is being released today, very sweet.

Stamp – Royal Langnickel; Studio G Alpha
Inks – VersaFine Onyx black and Sepia brown; Distress inks; Black Stazon
Usual Suspects – Paper trimmer; Glue dots; silicone glue
Other – Brayer; Brads; Stampbord; Alcohol inks; etching tool

    Hi Kim!

    I abseloutly love your latest creations 🙂 I am wondering if the sentiment you have used comes from Studio G Alpha as well? I´m going to make a wedding card for a couple that love cycling and traveling. I was also asked to keep the card in blue tones! I think I might have to borrow some of your ideas from this ATC!!!

    I also have to add that I think the "Enjoy the journey" sentiment will work great on a wedding card! A little different, but still quite romantic if you think about it…. 🙂
