I made this card to showcase the lovely set of travel themed stamps I picked up from a bargain bucket at the Farnborough show in the spring. No brand name on the pack and I think it only cost £1, but I love, love, LOVE them! Here I've stamped them in dark green and sponged with a lighter green to give them an aged appearance. Although the London Eye and the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge are pretty modern so maybe the vintage look is a bit out of place. But I like it.
I chose the London, Sydney and San Francisco images along with the tiny postcards for this card, along with a sentiment printed out from Debbie Moore's "Vintage discovery" CD. The background paper is from an old K&Company pad, it is a map of the North American continent. I'm not sure why I decided to stencil a stone wall over part of it - I think somewhere in the back of my mind I must have been subconsciously thinking of The Great Wall of China, just to add another continent into the mix!
