Today I am posting a project for the following challenges:
Out of a hat creations, weekly challenge 54 'Suitcase/Travel'.
The Artistic Stamper April challenge 'Texture'.

I started by creating a suitcase from white card stock, to do this I used a box received from a friend as a rough template and once happy with the basic shape I ran the pieces through the big shot inside a Cuttlebug spots and dots embossing folder and then inked with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy distress ink.  Next I added straps and a handle made from kraft card stock and added faux stitching before covering the whole piece with Tim Holtz rock candy distress paint.  To add the travel theme I stamped the Docrafts all aboard map stamp plus the Tim Holtz plane, hand, compass, airmail and sentiment.  I ripped and distressed the edges of the map and then cut out and inked each stamped piece with the brushed corduroy and gathered twigs and added to the suitcase with double sided foam.
Thanks for looking!
