Card Concept Daring To Dream

Welcome to the Card Concept #147 Daring To Dream! I made several cards, 2 of the cards, including the main card, are Clean and Layered and a 3rd card is Shabby Chic & Vintage, using a recycled product.
When I first saw the photo and the suitcases I knew I wanted to use this Fun Stampers Journey set: Classic that I have had in my stash for years. I haven't used it before, so it was really time. This is a red rubber stamp with wonderful detail.
I had in my mind to make the background with Stonehedge Kraft Watercolor Paper from Blick Art Materials. This is a 90 lb. paper - on the lighter side, so it makes a good card front. I bought the 22" X 30" sheet from Blick Art and cut it into workable sized pieces. It came packaged beautifully, no bent corners, etc., and a really good value for the money.
I stamped the suitcase image with Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil using second generation stamping. This means I inked up the stamp, stamped it once on scrap paper and then the second time on the Stonehedge Kraft Watercolor Paper. I knew I was going to use my Derwent Inktense Colored Pencils, so I didn't want dark outlines, but just the hint of the lines.
The sentiment came from Technique Junkies Wisdom of Oz set which I am currently using the first heart stamp for Valentine's cards:

As usual, I made extra cards while I was at it. One card I used some corrugated paper that came in the mail. Recycle my friends!
 And one card is monochromatic - kraft and brown colors:
After I had all 3 card fronts ready I felt they were missing something. Too much empty space.  So, I used the postage stamp from a Stampendous set, Grunge to fill in the negative space.

So how fun is this challenge? Here are all 3 cards:
Come join us for this challenge and maybe break out some of your stash that has been neglected! Thanks for visiting, friends.
