Artistic Outpost Challenge::Travel

Artistic Outpost ( has a challenge for the month of May involving "Travel".  Ahhh, one of my favorite things to do!  I am only allowed to use their stamps for the challenge so I used their "Diesel Punk" stamp set, which is my favorite.  I started with some patterned card stock that has a kraft look to it.  I cut it to make a 5"x7" card and folded it so the plain kraft side makes the inside plain.  The outside has a map of the world.  I started with a piece of scrap paper and stamped the cute little boy in the center.  I masked him off and stamped speed limits, etc. all around him using black Archival ink.  I colored the boy in with my new Tim Holtz distress ink pens and decorated his scarf with Distress Rock Candy.  I distressed the edge of the panel with the new Peacock ink by Ranger and a little Seedless Preserves.  I wrapped some baker's twine with a grape look to it and attached a key with a jump ring.  I affixed this panel to a black piece of card stock that had a note book punched edge on the bottom and glued the whole panel to the card.  It still looked a little plain so I added the gears, etc. and 3 grey pearls.  I attached the pen nib with some waxed thread and the film strip with my Tiny Attacher.  I stamped Diesel Punk across the top of the film strip using Archival black ink.  The inside stamp says:  "Here's Looking at You Kid!".
