World Map and I made it for the Monday Blog Challenge at Simon Says Stamp where the theme this week is Big Stamp.
Apollo was cut from an old history book on the discovery of North America and I also used some Melange tissue paper.
What's unique here is the background and the tag itself.
A while back, I recycled some 300 lb. watercolor paper by covering it with gesso then put it away and forgot about it.
So today, when I began to apply watercolor to it (after I cut it into a tag shape), the watercolor wasn't sinking in because of the gesso. Duh!
So I sanded it down while it was still a bit damp and the edges became nicely distressed. Then I used watercolor which now absorbed into the paper more randomly than if it were a pristine surface. The blue color compelled me to use Apollo and the World Stamp because of the cloud and sea effect and, as they say, this tag is history.
