Hero Arts Vintage Travel Ideas

Today at A2Z Scrapbooking, we're showing how versatile the digital kit of Vintage Travel is.  This is one of my favorite digital kits and I have always used the old autos or some of the other images, but I have rarely concentrated my efforts on this postage stamp type image.  I printed the Travel Post and trimmed it to 5 1/4" X 4".  The wonderful lady in the old fashioned hat is from another image which I cut out by hand.  I colored her hat and I also laid down some more color on the ship (I almost called it a boat).  I took a white card and sponged it with Wilted Violet so it took on a deep shade for my background for the Travel Post panel.  I spritzed it with water and then adhered my panel to the card, with the lovely lady going on the lower corner with just her hat peeking over the violet card.  I wanted a personal touch so used a sea sentiment.  I love using those Nuvo Chrystal Drops too.  They make for great texture.

One of my friends is going on a trip up to Alaska by ship and this will be perfect.
