Safe Travels card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Transport it".

This card I made for a friend to wish safe travels. I remembered the Just Landed stamp set of Kaisercraft. What a fun set and perfect for this challenge. I started with texture paste and the Swiss Dots stencil. When it was dry, I applied a layer of Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint. Then with Mod Podge which is diluted with water and Infusions A Bit Jaded I have given the background this lovely color. It's one of my favorite colors.

Using the MISTI I stamped the Just Landed stamps with the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. A few of the stamps I stamped on Vellum with Versamark ink and I melted the Black Embossing Powder with my heat tool. The edges needed a little something and with a black watercolor pencil and a water brush I darkened them.
