APC Challenge Week #2 - Card 2

Woo home early and got to finish my second card!  I'm so excited about this one.  If you recall I shared the first card yesterday....

and here is how I left the second card....

Claudine's card held the sentiment "Expand your wings, learn new things and fly".  To me that intimated a journey so I went that route.  Her card also had a fairy on it but I don't have any fairy stamps that are really my style so I improvised!  I think the figure I used paired nicely with the sentiment I chose to use....

I started off by stamping an interesting texture stamp on the background with Peanut Brittle Luxe ink.  The nice thing about this ink is that it stays wet long enough that I was able to dab on copper & gold PanPastels for a beautiful shimmer effect.  I added some "travel" themed washi tape and a nifty compass die-cut from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.  

Next I stamped Alice on white cardstock, colored with spectrum noir colored pencils and fussy cut her.

I added the pointing finger washi tape, the sentiment and stamped a compass in the corner.  The sentiment says, "Where ever you go.... Go with all your heart."

Stamps - Background Texture - Just For Fun Rubber Stamps
Alice & Compass - Deep Red Stamps
Sentiment Font  - Ornatique

and here they are both together....

I had lots of fun making these...I can't wait to see what is to come!
