Travel is our theme this week & as Cilla would say I've used a lorra, lorra stamps! Time to re visit some of the favourites I've used over the past year or so & all of them very suited to the theme.
So shrink have to use Stazon for stamping on it. Or do you?! Anyone who knows me knows that I hate Stazon with a vengeance, I did get out my pad for this but it was too dry, no re inker, blah, blah, blah oh what a shame!! So you can use Brilliance too but it will take a time to dry I usually leave it over night but if you're really careful in your handling & don't want to colour, the shrinking process will dry the ink. Sorted! I can't believe how all my pieces stamped perfectly the first time  (I was short of shrink plastic so didn't hold out much hope of this happening, you know how it goes!!) & even more amazed when they all behaved in shrinking too! Phew! I just added a little light colour to the images after with some Sakura pencils. 
I stamped the card blank all over using the Calligraphy Sampler & the rest you can see for yourselves from the picture. The use of the old map for the photography was courtesy of Mr Frosty & which I think looks pretty cool but don't tell him I said that!! Bye for now see you next time!
