Life is a voyage of discovery...

Good morning and happy weekend, it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'...this week the theme is 'Travel'. This theme can be interpreted many ways and I couldn't decide what to make so I trawled back through some of my older stamps hoping that inspiration would bite me! I 'discovered' this gorgeous stamp from Crafty Individuals...and the rest was easy! I stamped the image twice onto some parchment effect cardstock, added a bit of colour to one image using distress ink I cut the ship from the second image, shaped it with a ball tool and adhered it onto the coloured panel using pinflair glue, it does give a lovely dimension which sadly doesn't really show in the photo! I matted the stamped panel onto several layers of distressed DP, added a bit of twine, metal corner and a stamped sentiment.
I hope you'll now travel over to  Sweet Stampin' to discover the fabulous creations of my teamies, and of course we'd love to see how you interpret the travel theme.
Thanks for visiting
