My text background was created from some old maps, which I used to make a card background and a matching envelope.
I stamped the image directly onto the map and used colour co-ordinating pro markers to colour the images....I really like that you can still see the map through the images.
My sentiments are from a set by Altenew......'Missing You' on the card and 'Hi' on the envelope.
I tore the map and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink...Tea Stain, then stuck it onto a piece of Kraft card.
For the envelope, I only wanted one half of the image, so I stamped it onto velum, coloured him using pro marker again, and fussy cut him out and stuck him onto the corner of the envelope.
To finish the card, I used a piece of two tone gift wrapping cord.
I love these guys, and intend to use them a lot more...watch this space!X
