I am keeping this short and sweet. Used the following PTI stamps and products: text style basics, sailor stamp set, big birthday wishes, fancy flourishes, limeade ice, chartreuse, espresso, white inks and papers, by the numbers strip die, and my paper scoring board for added texture. I also roughed up the edges of the espresso strip of paper to add texture. The layered stamping of text, flourishes and compass in different shades also add depth and texture. I wanted to emboss the flourishes but I was rushed and did not have time to let the white craft ink dry before doing the flourishes in versamark ink. The scoring board was used at the bottom of the limeade ice layer for textured stripes. The die cut numbers are not popped up so the card is very flat and mailable. I think this counts for the MIM challenge.
I got the inspiration for this card from Betsy Veldman. Hers was much more gothic looking.
