Adios Amigos

Hello everyone,

I made this card for for our friends who are moving to Seattle,WA. Goodbyes are always hard...
I have been pondering for days about what card should I give them and then I found this freebie of the map of United States from the Old Design Shop...and something just clicked...
I knew exactly what to make...



I took a black n white print of the map and glued it to a watercolour paper. Then I painted on it with some watered down blue acrylic colour (I chose the colour blue...coz it is always raining in Seattle).While this was drying, I took a printout of  the Space Needle, which is a landmark in Seattle. I fuzzycut the image and coloured it with Archival ink...It looked like a beautiful silhouette

I glued down the Space Needle on one side of the card and stamped the sentiment in Archival Ink.
I had to stamp on it a few times to get a good impression.

I drew the black border with a Bic Marker...



Now for the card base. I took a Kraft cardstock and stamp randomly on it with a few sentiment stamps.

Lastly, I placed the map piece on the Kraft base...
And the card was done...





I am entering this card in the following challenges:
