You do know that Pinterest can steel a lot of your time if venturing on to that webpage? On the other hand that site is full of ressources and ideas, that you suddenly remember to use, if you have pinned them.
Fran called the July swap out with a "Hello, Summer" theme, and for me summer is not only nice weather but usually also a little bit of travelling. Soon I realised that I would have to use 3 different techniques if I wanted to created the card idea that popped into my head.
Wanted to make a double card, but had "only" found a tutorial, that will do for some of the idea - and luckily I managed to alter it just a little bit to fit my idea.
The card's front needs to show my interpretation of travelling, and an idea that I got from a pin on Pinterest seemed perfect - plus I do like to do some weaving ;o) I always save maps from my vacations so it was easy to photo copy parts of a Manhattan street map + a US map onto some thin photo paper, however not glossy photopaper as I wanted to ad something more to that frontpage.
I remembered a freebie digistamp from Beyond the Fringe Crafts that I saved about a year ago - made me smile when I first saw it as immediately thinking "Travel souvenirs" - I believe most of us have our "thing" when it comes to travel souvenirs weather it be maps, photos, small replicas, posters etc.
Well this is the swap card as it looked when I sent it off to Jayne :o)
Stamped coloured with COPICs and the red border is WASHI tape.
Enjoy your tea, Jayne :o)
