Travelling again

This year has been a repeat of last year with all the traveling around. I'm now off on the last leg and I really hope that things will quieten down after this.

It seems apt to use the new Traveler stamp set for today's project (not that I'm traveling by ocean). I've also used one of my favourite card styles too.  I've used this Z Fold style at a few classes in the past, and people always enjoy making them.

These cards are not the easiest to photo! I just couldn't get the thing to stay flat.

I experimented a little with this card because I could not get the ocean to look right. In the end, I simply inked up one of my acrylic blocks with ink from a Lost Lagoon Stampin' Write Marker and used the block as my stamp. I used my H Block which is long and thin (11.3 cm x 4.1 cm) and swept the pen along the length of it. I love how the pen marks make it look like the sunlight is hitting the water.

I have another Traveler card to share with you and the post will be up in a couple of days.
