Ruth 1:16 – “But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.”
This verse and that globe stamp was just begging to go together!
I decided to make an encouragement card for a friend moving away.
I have always loved doodling globes and drawing different takes on the Earth, so I am drawn to this stamp time and time again. I guess that’s why I included it in the stamp set to begin with! Haha. I only used the globe stamp on the envelope. That black and white wallpaper look is one of my favorite techniques.
When in doubt keep stamping. Keep repeating. Keep it simple.
A key tip for creating the wallpaper look is to make the stamp go every direction and go off the page. Put down a paper behind it so you don’t stamp up your table – and use every inch to squeeze in part of the stamp.
To create the card I stamped and watercolored the globe on white paper, backed it on map paper, and smudged the edges with a black ink pad. I watercolored an abstract globe pattern on the card and splattered it. I used tiny alpha stamps for the message, glued it all together and BAM easy, thoughtful card!
Here is a look at the retro stamp set that the globe is a part of. GET YOURS HERE.
How do you use your globe stamp?
