I started using some Altenew layering stamps ("Big Earth") on pearlized white card, using Archival and Distress Oxide inks. Didn't work --- the Distress Oxide would NOT stick and would not dry. So I turned the card over to the more-matte side and tried again. Still had issues but at lest the ink would dry --- although it looked oddly streaked. After I finished, though, the streaks linked like ocean currents/waves and terrestrial streams/valleys in my map of the Earth so I kept it.
The sentiment was stamped in Archival "Jet Black" which didn't seem to mind the coated surface.
The final assembly involved layering the image on different colors of green card stock (including an ivory notecard that had Distress Oxide Ink blended onto it's edges) and, while covering the globe, spritzing the card with Distress Markers:
- Stamps: Altenew “Big World”; Making Memories Magnetic Stamp Alphabet “evolution”
- Inks: Distress Oxides “Peeled Paint”, “Broken China” and “walnut Stain”; Distress Markers “Peeled Paint” and “Broken China”; Archival “Jet Black; and “Watering Can”; FudeBall1.5 “black”
- Papers: Paper Studio Value Pack Notecards “Ivory”; scraps of ColorMates “Light Lucious Lime” (CML854), olive, and pearl white card stock
- Adhesives: Viva Las Vegas “Miracle Tape”; Distress Collage Medium
