2010 Gothic Arches #20 - Planes, Trains and Automobiles

I am back today with the new theme for this fortnight for the Inkurable Stampers 2010 Gothic Arch challenge, details of which you can find here, or the dedicated Flickr group for inspiration which is here.

The theme is planes, trains and automobiles - I have gone for the automobiles option :)

The background was coloured with Distress Inks, the compass stamped in spiced marmalade, the quote in barn door, timetable in black archival. Tickets were stamped in black and coloured in antique linen, the bottom arrow stamped in wild honey and clear embossed, the smaller arrow in rusty hinge and lightly outlined in Zebra Sarasa red pen. The truck was stamped twice – once onto white cardstock, and once on to some plastic packaging rubbish (in stazon). Both were trimmed, and the plastic was attached directly over the white version using carefully place glue dots. Carefully position the tickets, add the alpha stickers and outlined the arch to finish.

Stamps – Tim Holtz ‘The Journey’, Glitz Designs ‘Vintage Love Compass’
