The Adventurer

Good afternoon everyone, hope everyone is well and looking forward to the 'soggy' bank holiday weekend we are expecting :)  Nevermind, it's always a good excuse to stop in and be creative.  I made this card as I fancied a colouring in session.  I downloaded a Mo Manning image called  The Adventurer and coloured him with my copics.  I then cut him out with a nestie and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink.  I used the next size up die to cut out some kraft card and again inked the edges.  The backing paper is from 7 Gypsies.  The sentiment which I thought was just perfect for the image is from Lindsay Mason 'Creative Thoughts' stamp set.  I made a little compass from a Tim Holtz mini stamp and then cut it out using the Epiphany Shape studio and popped it into a little metal setting.  I was pleased with how the compass stamp fitted perfectly in the setting.  

This image reminds me of the 'interesting' walks we had in the Lake District earlier this year with Kevin's brother and his wife....we set off, maps in hand and got lost every day :)

Thanks for popping by.
