I made these ATC's for Marci's swap. The theme is to use a balloon. I added a map to the bottom of the card, under the travel ribbon but it is so hard to see on this set of ATC's. Here's the scoop:
The map stamp by SU is heat embossed onto vellum with clear embossing powder. You have to really look hard to see the lines of the stamp. Great concept but not easy to notice unless you're really looking for it. Anyway, I then created the sand by coloring the back of the vellum with a tan Copic marker. I blogged about the ATC's in the following link but honestly, I had to reread the description and look closely to see that fine detail.
I'm entering the Use your stamps challenge for the balloon stamp, map stamp, and the sun rays stamp. I'm also entering the Cricut challenge for the geotag (Bits and Pieces cartridge).
