i have one more card to share as the august guest designer for taylored expressions. both the sentiment and globe stamps are from the doodle notes set concepted by jen shults and illustrated by nancy mckinney. i've decided that i need to pull out my rarely used supplies and start using/learning a few more techniques on my cards - i guess that is what 16 hours of tim holtz classes over 2 days will do to a person. nothing too fancy happened on this card - just some alcohol inks and a small piece of foil tape.
to get the blue/green blended look on the globe apply a drop of blue alcohol ink and a drop of green alcohol ink to the felt applicator and swipe across a scrap of glossy cardstock. stamp the globe image with archival ink and let dry - a heat gun will speed this up.
for the globe base - stamp globe base image on a small piece of a foil tape sheet, cut out and stick onto a scrap of paper. fold the foil tape to create creases and ink with black alcohol ink or spray ink - i used spray ink. once dry apply a matte sealer.
