The Stamp Man Challenge- Travel

The new challenge over at The Stamp Man challenge is travel.

I had to make something quickly before I went on my jolly holibobs, so I whipped up a quick bookmark. Hopefully, this scheduled post has worked, cos I'm back today and I'll be drowning in washing......

The background is sprayed inks, and the lovely car is from the Aspects of Design plate 10- Men's. Available from the Stamp Man as ever. I wanted to emboss the car and have it all glossy and black, but I have zero luck with black embossing powder. So............. tip of the week is....... ink your stamp up with a clear embossing ink pad, then straight away ink it up with your chosen colour- in my case Versafine onyx black. The use fine clear embossing powder. I'm particularly fond of this technique as it allows me to use my favourite Versafine and keep all it's clarity with fine details.

Righto, over to you, show us your travel stuff- there'll be loads of inspiration on the DT challenge blog as ever. My teamies are the most talented bunch :)
