Bon Voyage, Clean and Simple

I had an idea right away when I saw the codeword over at the Addicted to Clean and Simple challenge blog. Of course I had to use the World Map background stamp and the globe from the Traveler set. That was a no-brainer!

I started with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and stamped the World Map in Garden Green. I wanted to make it look like an old map, so I sponged Early Espresso, Garden Green, and Night of Navy onto the map. Next I stamped the globe from the Traveler set in Early Espresso on a piece of whisper white card stock. I sponged this with the same three inks.

I cut the image and the Early Espresso mat with the Window Frames Framelits. I pierced the Early Espresso mat using the Festive Piercing Mat. I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to stamp the "Bon Voyage" in Early Espresso. I think the off-kilter saying looks like old-fashioned printing and it goes with the vintage look of the card. I cut the banner with the Banner Punch, inserting it from the outside of the punch so that I could have a long tail.
