I have a card for you today. I know it's been a while since I made any. I have used my Compass Framelits, along with various Tim Holtz papers. I have used distress Inks and Vintage Photo Distress Stain in a mister.
I decided to add a mini globe as part of my compass. I stamped the gentleman twice onto Tim's papers. Love how he turned out. Also adding some metal embellishments for more interest.
This is the back of the card.
Inside I have used the same inks again. I have added a part of the compass and the mini globe stand to create a compass on a stand I suppose.
I cut the mini globe stand twice and placed one behind the other to create more shadow. I think you can just see that.
Same inks again also using the stamp from the compass set.
I'm mostly happy with this card but I do think it is missing texture paste. It seems a bit flat in some areas. Anyway, hope you like it. Thanks so much for visiting today. I welcome any comments. Have a great day!
