World Map's first inking!

I recently purchased the new World Map background stamp, and finally had a few minutes to play.  I want to showcase this stamp as a great stamp for using on masculine cards.  So, here is my creation -- another card we are making at my next stampers club.

I simply stamped the stamp in black Stayzon ink on my Whisper White panel, colored in the edges of the water with Marina Mist ink using my ink pad and blender pen, and then Pear Pizzaz ink for the edges of the continents.  After assembling my card, I used Crystal Effects to outline all of the water, making a raised, textured "watery looking" border for all the water.  Quite a simple card, but I like it.  For the accent on the lower right, I used my Word Window punch to punch out a couple strips and folded them over the edge of the front panel, and added some of the new Neutrals candy dots to the tips.  Like? :)

Ok!  that's it for today.  Off to roast at the Fair in just a bit, once the little muffin wakes up from her nap. :)  I hope each of you are enjoying your Saturdays too!
