Born to roam

I am back with a bonus piece for the Stamplorations Theme & Sketch challenge. If you missed my first post, the theme and sketch are:

I made a tag following the sketch only, using the Born to Roam stamp set.

First I applied Distress inks in Scattered straw, Carved Pumpkin and Red Brick to a manilla tag and sprayed some water over the Retro Circles stencil. For added interest in the background I stamped, with the same colours of Distress inks, motifs from the Art Marks stamp set.

Then I simply stamped the footprints along the curve of the sketch, the globe and a sentiment from the Born to Roam stamp set in black ink. A bit of liquid glass on the globe, a doodled border and some twine finish the tag.

Come by the Stamplorations blog for more inspiration for this month's challenge from the Design Team.
