Hi friends! Jenny here sharing a card using a few travel dies. I don't often scrapbook but these dies would make an awesome layout. I knew I would use these three dies and combine them with a map or vintage paper background but the additional textures and mixed media elements evolved as I worked.
I found a piece of corrugated cardboard (that my daughter had left from opening a box) and used it to create an interesting texture on the card. It was colored with distress ink and glued to the card front. I painted a crackle glaze on the Italy die and covered the Colosseum and World Atlas dies with white and gold Frantage embossing powders.
I always like adding glitz but I thought rhinestones and glitter would look too new on this vintage card. After distressing with both ink and a distress tool, I dabbed gold texture paste on the edges of the patterned card stock. I backed the World Atlas with the same blue-gray card stock behind the patterned paper. It helps tie the color into the piece and helps the detailed globe stand out against the background. The main card is a 5.5" square base.

I hope you enjoyed my attempt at mixed media and thanks for stopping by today!
