World Traveler

oh the joys of being a kid with a new set of wheels!! I'm guessing when this vintage photo image was taken he thought he was king of the world :o)

Card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
INKS: Staz-On Jet Black, Stampin' Up! Not Quite Navy, Versamark Watermark
SUPPLIES: cotton balls, Q-tips, crown punch, glitter pen, white gel pen, SU Chalks, pop-dots, black photo corners
TECHNIQUE: from Rubber Stamping Artist Trading Cards by TweetyJill Publications
  1. Stamp main image on white cardstock using Jet Black ink.
  2. Stamp same image on Post-It, trim into rectangle and place over previously stamped image.
  3. Ink map image with Versamark and cover the unmasked area of the white cs.
  4. Wait a few minutes and then apply chalks to Versamarked area with cotton balls.
  5. Uncover masked image and apply chalks as desired with Q-tips.
  6. Stamp blue scrap with ticket, punch with crown punch, apply white gel pen to edges and sparkle pen to crown points.
  7. Stamp quote in blue ink on white cardstock and trim whimsically. Edge with Jet Black from the pad.
  8. Use black ink pad at an angle to edge the main image.
  9. Glue black photo corners to corners of image as shown.
  10. Attach quote panel and crown to image with pop-dots.
  11. Ink tickets, numbers and star with Jet Black and stamp on background.


For the distressed look on numbers/letters, after inking the stamp I used a cotton ball to remove some ink a bit, giving those areas a faded look. Here's the tip - if you use Tack n' Peel or Tack It Over and Over on your acrylic blocks with your unmounted stamps, don't let the cotton ball rub on it or you'll have a mess of fuzz ;o)

12. Trim main panel to size and mount to black cs, and then textured blue.
