World Map for Friday Mashup

Thank goodness for Friday's! I started back to work this week after having most of the summer off(I work for the school district) and I am wiped out! I'll be able to relax on Saturday, we're taking 3 of the 4 kids to the big air show at the base in Anchorage. Its held every 2 yrs and we go to each one, its the highlight of the summer for us!

What's another great way to relax? Why, playing along with us at The Friday Mashup of course :) This week Tara is our hostess and she has a great sketch, plus a technique to try....the Deft Tile Technique. If you are like me and aren't familiar with this technique you can go HERE to see a tutorial.

I originally pulled out Pleasant Poppies to try the technique with and let me just say that was a big fat fail! The lines from the stamp kept going where they shouldn't have, I had a horrible time trying to sponge around the tiles and finally I just threw that piece away and started brand new with World Map.

Now, this card is pretty darn similar to the card I made for The Friday Mashup last week LOL. What can I say, I really like using this stamp with certain colors. Here I used Baked Brown Sugar, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz. I again had some issues with sponging around the tiles but just went with it and in person it looks pretty good. I turned the sketch and used a stamp from Starburst Sayings for my sentiment , which is popped up above a  strip of Pear Pizzazz  going across the card along with the Baked Brown Sugar ribbon.

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup and see all the great projects from the rest of the design team, and I hope you'll play along with us!
