Travel Woman

The collage was stamped on glossy cardstock starting with Ranger Clear Resist ink and the Scroll Art Design stamp. I love the way the scroll resist looks on the angels face.
The layer was sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks in Concord Grape, Broken China and Mustard Seed, blending the edges of the colors. The images and inks are all available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.
Stamps include: Scroll Art Design, Triangle Angel, Peacock Feather, MK Postmark, Paris Postmark, Moutier Postmark, Cote D'Azur Postmark, French Letter & Word Diamonds. I stamped over the glossy sponged layer using TH Black Soot. The Word Diamond layer is also stamped using Black Soot and sponged with Concord Grape. The Violet card base was stampe with the Scroll Art Design using Stazon Opaque White. The glass beads are attached with the fibers and I added a gem stone to the angels forehead. The postage stamps are stickers by Rebecca Sower Designs.


  1. Your collages are beautiful. The colors in this one are soft and springy...very pretty!

  2. WOWSA!!!
    I love the colors--and how your embellishments compliment/enhance them!!!!!
    That main image is FANTASTIC!!!!

    I also love how the card base turned out!

  3. Collages are so difficult for me to stamp such that I feel it is balanced. But Shelly this is absolutely PERFECT!! Love this gorgeous card.

  4. Beautiful collage Shelly!! I love the colors and all your bg combos!! Awesome!!
