All Mapped Out... **Giveaway!**

Goodly Morning... tis a fine day indeed for a giveaway... namely, this ATC that I have made plus a few goodies too... more of that later :O)) The ATC base is made from mountboard that was cut using the Alterations ATC & Corners die, which is such a useful die because I love to use mountboard for my ATC bases... no more cutting with a Stanley Knife! I stamped the Europe Map background onto the base using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Traditional Tan paint to create a resist. Once this was dry, I used Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans Distress Stains, dabbing them over the map, the green for the land and blue for the sea. I spritzed with water, dabbed with a paper towel to take off the excess and gave it a zap with the heatgun.




I used three of the new Crowns, lined them up on the acrylic block and stamped using black Archival Ink. I then popped a gorgeous Idea-ology Crown, from the Regal Adornments set, over the top of the bottom stamped crown. The sentiment was stamped onto cardstock that had been stamped with the Map background and Faded Jeans Distress Stains - this gives a lovely subtle smudgey image. The sentiment was popped behind a little bookplate and attached with brads.



Finally, I used White Dabber to cover the Philosophy Tag so it went into the recesses, then removed the excess with a paper towel. This was attached by Jump Ring to a Hinge Clip. I used the black Archival inkpad to swish around the edge of the ATC to bring the whole design in together.



Now, onto the giveaway! Here's the prize... This ATC, along with the Crowning Glory Stamp Set, the Europe Map Background Stamp, Round The World Stamp and the new Travelling Words Set... plus the Kling On to mount the stamps onto. Here are the stamps:






To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post and one name will be drawn at random and announced on Sunday 3rd July 2011. Thanks for looking... have a fab weekend!! TTFN
