Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Have you been enjoying seeing all the new images? The new images this month are really wonderful & the woodgrain & map will be useful all year long! Today I'm featuring the World Map image. I stamped it onto parchment colored c/s with the Paris Dusk ink, colored with Copics & fussy cut it. I just happened to have a world map embossing folder (what are the odds?) so I embossed it on the blue background. The greeting was split in two and die cut w/ an arrow die in opposite directions. 
The glossy heart is a punch that I used on a separate stamped piece of the map & attached to card board to make it thicker. I was going to put some glossy accents on it but it turns out I'm terrible at watching stuff dry. Then I remembered I have mega amounts of UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) so I rubbed the top of the heart w/ Versamark & heat embossed it w/ the UTEE about 3 times. Once is good..3 times is better! The little red dot on the compass rose is a bonus...I had so much heated UTEE that a perfect round dot dripped off. When it cooled, I colored the back side w/ a red Copic and attached it on top w/ a drop of super glue. f

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
