Week 2 at The Cheerful Stamp Pad continues with Far Away Places

The Cheerful Stamp Pad is still heading for far away places for week 2 of the challenge. The sponsor for the challenge is Lunagirl designs, if you love vintage you need to check them out, the collage pages are gorgeous. I used the Memories of Paris for my first week but there was one more picture on the collage page just begged me to use it and I made it into an ATC (artist trading card),

The base is dark brown the next layer is gold paper from the dollar store, Memories is from the title of the collage page. I'm pleased with how it turned out. 


For my card I used Lunagirl World Maps collage sheet. I haven't worked much with collage sheets and had to get a lesson from my daughter on how to just use one section of the sheet and it was so easy, see you can teach an old dog new tricks.  I picked the London map and distress the edges, I have a Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Collection clear stamps set and took this opportunity to use several stamps. A couple of weeks ago I found a Fiskers Stamp press at a yard sale and I used it to make the scene to fit perfect and straight. (a feat for me) I will add a sentiment when I decide Birthday or Father's Day.

Closer look at the map and vintage car.

Thanks for stopping by today I hope you will think of some far away place and make a project for The Cheerful Stamp Pad's Challenge.

The image on that ATC is just WOW. And I love the card - I have those stamps & haven't used them yet!
