The Free for All (F4A322) & Mixability (MIX169) Challenges today on Splitcoast both have Earth Day as the theme. So I thought a world map would fit in. For the MIX I have ink, Copic markers & UTEE. 

I stamped the world map 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.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

  1. How cool that you should have a world map embossing folder. I like the way you added your heart with the sentiment. I do like that map. Great work.
