Going on A Trip - Day 2 of myPersonal Challenge

Since I would be using the Technique Junkie stamps from Vintage Travel Cases  for this personal challenge http://techniquejunkies.com/vintage-travel-cases-set-of-5/, I decided to look through my stack of vintage looking papers to see if there was a way to use any of them.  I found this dapper looking gentleman, and thought about his traveling on a long trip.   So I stamped the various size of the luggage in this stamp set with brown pigment ink and cover them all with clear embossing powder and heat embossed them all.   Then I fussy cut all of those pieces out and stacked them around near his feet. 


Then of course he would need his tickets for his long trip.  I stamped the words from the Vintage Travel Cases set  with brown pigment ink, covered it with clear embossing powder, and heat embossed the word. I punched out the words with a smaller ticket punch and then punched out three tickets with a larger punch out of  background papers for the rest of the tickets. The smaller ticket is slightly offset and that makes it looks much smaller than the others.

I wonder where this gentleman is going on his "Trip of a Lifetime?"   Perhaps he will travel on a ship from America to over to Europe.  Or perhaps he a train tycoon and is traveling on one of his trains to see the "Wild West?" Is his trip business or personal?  Where does your imagination take him on his trip?  

Have a great day --- and get inky!

What a fabulous card. At first glance I thought the man was a stamp I wasn't familiar with LOL. You did a terrific job using the old fella and those stacked suitcases are perfect as can be. They look professionally finished.

Love it, Judy. It's some great scene stamping, plus a story too. My vote's on train tycoon. I read ahead and saw your cute boxes for your grandies, well done! Enjoy them! xoxo
