Collage Card for Artisant Challenge No 1

My card is designed for Aneta and MSD Challenge No 1.

Taking ideas from both the card sketch and the colourway, using Aneta's tutorial suggestions. I gathered together my various items to make up my card, with a travel theme, a map for the background edged in Black Soot Distress ink, stamped balloon, almanac background with a compass and some added liquid pearls effect, a time piece background, a map of the world, postcard, a ticket with Dream stamped on, and a die cut star and white railings.

Put them together using foam pads to get some dimension, Ta Dah !!

I am a huge Waltzingmouse Stamp Fan, and spotted the simply amazing designs entered by Artisant in the Waltzingmouse PJ Party and the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge, which forwarded me to Aneta's super blog, where I found this tutorial and challenge. I just had to make a card. Completely different to my ususal simple stamp style, but I really enjoyed using my die cuts. Sadly there are no Marion Smith products on my card, but I intend to search out a supplier in the UK.

Thank you for visiting and hope that you enjoyed reading about my card.
