MIM #18-- attempt #2

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Here's is my second attempt for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: adding tissue paper to your project for texture:


I used some October Afternoon patterned paper that was in my scraps stash and covered it with the tissue paper. I also used Papertrey Ink cardstock, my Seeing Stars die (to make the compass symbol) & a sentiment from Think Big Favourites #4 stamp set. The compass stamp is Pink Paislee.

Thanks for looking!

Love the concept for this card! The map goes so perfectly with the sentiment, and the tissue adds such a vintage feel. Thanks for sharing!
