Where to go?

Here's a tag made for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge 199 with the theme of On the Road/Transport. On the basis I have no vehicle stamps that might be seen on the road, I've gone for a general travel theme.

The background turned out nothing like I intended - bit dark - but maybe intense is the word. I've stamped and coloured a Hero Arts Map stamp and used a Darkroom Door Journey Word Block stamp top and bottom. I've then sprayed over Tim Holtz's compass mask with Faded Jeans Distress Re-inker. I've shrunk Tim Holtz's No Journey stamp (excuse the lack of focus on this bit) and just added some paper coated wire to finish.

Have to admit it's one of those that could well have ended up in the bin, but thought I'd persevere. It's the taking part that matters....right?
