bon voyage!

Hi!!

I created this card with our Noah's Ark stamp set....I'm leaving on holiday today and will be gone for two weeks....and this is where my inspiration for this card came from. You know those vintage suitcases that have all those stickers on them, travelled all over the world....all distressed....that's what I was going for with this card.


This is a combo of paper piecing and copics...I paper pieced the boat (using Basic Grey pattern papers and I coloured the animals with copics and then distressed the whole thing using Tim Holtz Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.




Want to win this stamp set?? Just leave me a comment and when I get back I'll randomly choose a winner
Take care!
