All packed

Hello faithful followers and crafters, I have another inspiration make for the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge!

For February the Theme and Sketch are:  
You can choose to follow either the theme or the sketch and, of course, both for the chance to win a prize!
For this second make I followed the sketch:

I used the STAMPlorations Born to Roam set and stamped the suitcases on white card. After colouring the image I fussy cut it and layered it on a piece of Gelli-printed paper. The oval mat behind it also sports a previously Gelli printed paper.

For the sentiment, from the same set, I used a Kaleidacolor inkpad to get that multi-coloured look.

My background is watercolour paper inked with Oxide Distress inks and embossed, with the Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing Folder Lumber, then inked again (Walnut Stain and Scattered Straw) to catch the high points.
