Wanderlust Expressions 1 & 2, Typografia Wanderlust + Icons Blog Hop

Today I am sharing 3 projects made with the newly released Wanderlust series of stamps from STAMPlorations.  The series is made up of icons and Typografia sentiments and is a perfect fit for the Focus on the sentiments challenge we currently have running.

I have used the Typografia sentiments and the icons together to create 3 different projects.

My first project is a tag, I used water colour pens to create a wash of colour on my tag, which I then stamped the travel inspired icon images onto.  I love the strak black against the dreamy pinks and blues.  I chose to cut the sentiment up and use it spaced out over the entire tag causing the eye to travel taking in all of the artwork.

For my second project I used a Kraft card based and brown ink to stamp the compass and pin points. I then stamped the sentiment onto vellum and heat embossed in white.  I added a few white ink splatters for further interest.

Lastly I have a distressed card, the sentiment reads "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step", I wanted my card to look like it had travelled a thousand miles to distressed it by tearing the edges and adding creases to it.

The sentiments and imagery in this series are so versatile and can be used in cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor and so much more.

Here's a link to the series

The products I used are listed below

This time around it's a sketch challenge. You can use the sketch any way you like, flip it, rotate it or jumble it up. The idea is to be inspired and to create something you want to.

I played with the sketch a little to create this card, I hope it give you some more inspiration

I used the Butterfly Pieridae Stamp Set and some teal shades, two of my favourite things.
