The base is a sand color and was stamped with Map BG in Tim Holtz Black Soot, the edges sponged with TH Faded Jeans. The World Postcard is glossy cardstock that was sponged with TH Faded Jeans, Mustard Seed and Broken China. The postcard was stamped with Stazon Black. Then, I took a cotton ball soaked with rubbing alcohol, added a few drops of Encore Gold reinker and dabbed over the entire piece of cardstock. I knew the glossy paper would not absorb the metallic ink, so I dumped clear embossing powder over the layer and heat embossed it. It was really neat because I could manipulate the gold ink by putting the heat closer to areas that had heavier coverage and kind of getting it to fan out into the clear powder. The Compass was stamped on acetate with black stazon and attached with a vintage brad. The twill was distressed with TH Frayed Burlap.
