Old World Map

Old World Map_SaK

Today's Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge is to use the colors Blue/Green/Brown. Stop on over to the

Rubbernecker Blog and play along with us!

I happened across a piece of DP in my stash and was inspired to use it with the Rubbernecker Map Background

and World Postcard stamps. Both are in the Old World section under the Rubbernecker category. The oval fragment is one of the new

Tim Holtz ovals & circles collection. I used alcohol inks in Caramel/Denim/Lettuce and let it dry. The map background was stamped

in Versafine onyx black on natural ivory CS and then I adhered the fragment to the image using Glassy Accents as my glue. It dries

very quickly and you can use a scissors to trim closely around the fragment right away. I layered it on a cocoa scrap that

was stamped with the world postcard background in Versafine vintage sepia ink. The edges were punched with a ticket

corner and sponged with Distress Peeled paint and then layered on navy CS. The K&co. awning strip DP is sponged with
Distress Faded jeans and layered on Olive CS. I added ribbon and Dew Drops for my accents. Check out what the other

Rubbernecker designers have done for the challenge:

Candy - Candys Land

Jules - Stampin with Inky Fingers

Kittie - Kittie Kraft

Linda - Linda’s Works of Heart
