To start off, I created a background using a blending technique with distress inks. And then I added drops of water to the background then I blotted with a paper towel to dry. Next I stamped a city view image from Vogue Skies stamp set using our Noir Dye Ink on the background.

Then I stamped a map point Icon from Floral World Map stamp set using Grand Fuchsia Dye ink on separate cardstock. After that I fussy cut it and taped it down on the background as you can see from the images below. Lastly I stamped a sentiment from Floral World Map stamp set using Noir Dye Ink.
