Miniature Travels - Darkroom Door

'Voyage of Love'

Darkroom Door's latest inchie stamp set 'Travel Inchies' is fabulous fun!  I enjoy working with tiny, miniature sized things, so this set of travel inspired inches has brought much inspiration (and an even greater desire to adventure up to the northern hemisphere again one day!).

This first ATC includes some layering of vintage atlas papers and a lovely washi tape to create the background.  I stamped the inchies on white paper and created the tea stained look with Ranger's Old Paper Distress Marker and an Aquash brush.  I stamped the compass inchie onto a wooden button too.  The photograph is from Darkroom Door's London montage collage sheet, cut to an inchie size.  I embellished this piece with airmail twine, an English postage stamp, words for Darkroom Door's Prague Vol 2 Wordstrip and also cut the flag from an USA postage stamp.

'Explorer'

This next ATC has been created for Darkroom Door's Anything Goes ATC swap for September, so if you participate, you might find one of these in your new collection of ATC's!

Once again I've used a page from a vintage atlas to create the background and painted a layer of Pearl White paint over it.  I stamped the London Bridge directly onto the ATC and added a piece of vintage paper to it. The other inches were stamped onto various papers and a jigsaw piece.  I used some other Darkroom Door stamp sets to further embellish this piece:  London Vol 2, Steampunk, Photography and Montmarte.  To complete this piece, I added another word from Darkroom Door's Prague Vol 2 wordstrip, an English vintage postage stamp, hand stitching, a staple, small tag and some airmail twine.

If you've never worked with inchies before, this stamp set is a great starting point, especially if you have travel adventures to scrapbook!  

I'll be back soon with some more Darkroom Door goodness!
