Today is the second part of the new release inspiration by the Dressy Girls from All Dressed Up.

I'm playing with Bon Voyage today.  I've coloured the image with ProMarkers and polychoromos pencils.

Originally I was going to do a CAS card then I was then playing around with my die cuts for another card and I had this idea to do a luggage label with the car on.  Not satisfied with the strength of the card for a label I changed my mind and incorporated it onto a card.

The die cut I used was Marianne Designs Craftables one.  I also used some Sizzix letters to cut the TRAVEL out.  I backed Travel with black card so it would stand out.  the edges of the label were distressed with vintage photo and black soot ink to give it a grungy feel.  I've used some vintage seam binding and string to tie some tiny Steampunk goggles to the top (they made me thing of sunglasses) appropriate for the travel theme.

I then built the backing layers up using blue card, design papers from Prima Marketing Engraver pack.  I cut out one of the maps as a circle.
Final toppings were some more metal elements a clock face a Tim Holtz Destiny badge and a wooden chip board adventure bottle from Scrapienic.

Hope you love my inspiration for this fantastic new image by Wendy
