Travel Birthday Card

I love getting inky fingers and just playing with colours, inks and water and seeing what happens.
Every resulting background is different and fun.
This is what evolved from using 3 different colours of distress stains, a water spritzer and some white gloss card. I then added different travel themed stamps to made a vintage style male birthday card.

Supplies Used:
Distress stains - vintage photo, wild honey and shabby shutters (Tim Holtz)
Gloss white card, brown and green cardstock
Compass, clock, biplane and saying stamps (Kaszazz)
Cotton twill (Kaszazz)
Toffee crunch, Pistachio and Rich Cocoa inkpads (Memento)

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
