I'm not usually a one to use sketches but this one was perfect for what I was doing and so I went with it.
Sketch from Mojo Monday

I used a Tim Holtz blueprints stamp of a globe by stamping it with Versa Mark ink and heat embossing it with Ranger Platinum embossing powder on watercolor paper. I colored the image in with Peerless watercolors and a water pen by Ranger. Then I die cut the image out with a Spellbinders die and inked the inside with distress ink by Ranger. Patterned paper: The striped paper is an old one from my stash, the polka dot paper is by October Afternoon, map paper is from a paper pad named Danny O by K and Co and the background paper is by Tim Holtz Idealogy. I used some gray and white cardstock by Recollections for the strip going across behind the globe. The compasses are die cuts from my Cricut and the cartridge Wall Decor and More. I inked them with distress ink by Ranger.

Don't forget about yesterday's giveaway opportunity. Scroll down one to see what it's all about.

Thanks for looking.
