For the  Tim Holtz Compass Blueprint I stamped on a piece of designer paper from my stash and heat embossed with black and highlighted the outside circle and N, S, E, W with Yellow Wink of Stella, the inked the outside ring with Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger “Weathered Wood”.   Then cut it out with the die and mounted with black fun foam on the Tim Holtz Headstone which was randomly brushed with Versamark and highlighted with gold embossing powder.  This was placed on the base which was cut from THoltz Vintage Cabinet.  The sentiment Happy Birthday is from: Technique Tuesday’s Sunflower Stamp Set.  For the inside I stamped on gold Shimmerz by DCWV.  The black portion of the compass was left over from the front where I cut the needle out.  Wink of Stella was brushed over the black portion and placed over the stamped image on the gold paper.
