Destination Unknown


I made this as a masculine card - and because of that kept it pretty simple

Love this sentiment - there were many holidays when I was young when we had to stop and ask directions - it became a standing joke that it wasn't a 'proper' holiday until we had been lost!

Both the sentiment and the image were stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with silver ep.  The stamps are part of a set by Kiwistamping

The only embellishments were some strips of Washi tape - the zig zag tape has is silver, and has quite a sheen to it, and a line drawn around the border with a silver pen.

So glad motor vehicles have progressed past this stage!

Love the vintage image in a modern setting. The washi tape anchors the image and adds just the right amount of interest.
