Journey of Discovery

I am having fun with the images from
Innovative Stamp Creations. They are perfect for collage work, scrapbooking, altered art etc... For this card, I used stamps from rubber sheets Assemblage and Journey of Discovery for the sentiment. The architectural element was stamped on white tissue paper. I stamped the same size layer with a script stamp and the cracked wall stamp and then affixed the tissue using a thin coat of Mod Podge. I also put another layer of Mod Podge over the tissue before sponging. The sentiment was stamped directly on the CS and then I mod podged plain white tissue on top, added more mod podge and sponged the edges when dry. The script background DP is from The Paper Studio and I crumpled it and then DTP'd with Tim Holtz Old Paper distress ink. I love the depth you get from stamping on the opaque tissue and layering over other images. Check out Innovative Stamp Creations images soon, they are awesome and Betsy is a wonderful person to deal with!
