This months swap with my friends and colleagues over at 'In Love With Stamping', was a male theme.
Here I have used World Map #130342 (W) #130345 (C) stamped in Black ink and heat embossed with Stampin' Clear Embossing Powder #109130. I prefer this way rather than using black embossing powder, tonprevent stray black flecks being left behind.
I then coloured in the sea using one of the Aqua Painters #103954 with a loose wash of Lost Lagoon ink #133644 and Mossy Meadow ink #133645 for the land areas. I was amazed at how many shades I achieved with just one ink pad, as it seemed to break down on my tile 'pallette' into other blue and yellow pigments - which I loved for this project !
The gorgeous new Stitched Mossy Meadow Satin Ribbon #133670 was tied round card before layering onto card base.
I chose one of the sentiments from Chalk Talk #130631 (W) #130634 (C) for my topper and punched out using the co-ordinating Extra Large Oval Punch #119859.
