Those who do not travel.... collect travel stamps!

Hello, my dear stamping friends! Irit is here again and today I am going to show you some more Mixed Media pieces, inchies and ATCs!


For my first project, I started by creating a 4 inch strip that I added each of the stamps to finishing with "Those Who do not Travel" sentiment made with Authentique stickers.
The stamps for this project are from the Postoid stamp set from The Rubber Cafe
Two of the postage stamps were stamped over Kraft paper, one over clear vellum and the last one over some patterned paper. All were heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.  Next  I used 4 chipboard pieces, also covered with Kraft paper, stamped with a print background stamp from the Steampunk stamp set with  Versa Mark ink, and embossed with white embossing powder.  To finish the edges, I inked them with the same ink I used for Postoid Set.  

I finished by using my old, unused decorative stamp edge scissors, cutting all four stamps to postage stamp size.  Everything was glued with Scrap Happy glue the vellum too which worked perfectly and dried clear and invisible. 

The black lines are hand drawn with a black Zig pen.   Finally I finished with some colored twine tied around each of the 4 inchies before gluing over a piece of Lily Bee paper.


Next, as the Steampunk Charity Wings  stamp set was on the table, I made a set of 3 ATC too!
This time the same background was covered with different stamps from this set, some stamped over 7Gypsies tapes, I used staples, recycled twine, some Tim Holtz metal pieces and old Step and Time felt letters from Prima.  "It says Step in Time for the Journey".

See you next week with more stamped inspiration!
