Enjoy the Journey with CASology

I love to travel!!
Happy Tuesday! This week's cue card at CASology is perfect for me.
I'm currently in Cancun...on my own little journey as I celebrate one more lap around the sun :)
I'm awesomely blessed to make and photograph my card in this tropical paradise!

I always pack some art supplies when I travel and these three red rubber stamps, provided by tour super fab sponsor this week-- Rubber Dance Stamps called Travel, were on my packing list. I usually take a flexible medium like watercolor pens and pencils because I can make some very CAS art or use them get a little messy. This card was made by coloring Red, Orange, Yellow Green, and Green Zig Clean Color Brush Pens directly onto the "carte postale" stamp. A little huff and they stamp beautifully with full, bright color every single time! 

Believe it or not, I used paper from the hotel notepad to mask off the words so I could stamp the globes (in Hickory Smoke DI). For blindly lining them up (no stamp positioner this trip lol), I think I did pretty good :) Lastly, I scribbled the Yellow-Green ZCCBP on a scrap of paper, stamped "free yourself" and made a flag. I'm so in love with this card! And I didn't use any filters on this pic, just boosted the exposure---wowsers lol.

You've gotta journey on over to the other DT member blogs and see their inspiration for this week!
