Mini Mission July: Destination

Here's my response to the July mini challenge from Mission Inspiration: Destination.  As usual I have completed the mini mission on a mini surface, a #8 Manilla tag.
 I gave the tag a coat of Pebeo white gesso and, once dry, stamped the three different sizes of paper boat from the Destination Unknown stamp set by Visible Image using Black Soot Archival ink.
Once I had covered all the stamped images with a layer of Pebeo Drawing Gum and dried everything with a heat gun, I added Faded Jeans, Fossilized Amber and Fired Brick Distress Oxides with a blending tool, spritzed the tag with a fine mist of water and dried everything off again.
For the next stage I stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Bright White detail embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer.  I had used a Woodware anti static bag all over the tag before I started stamping.  The map from the Scripted Streets stamp set (also by Visible Image was used three times.  The second (middle) stamped image didn't come out as clearly as the ones at the top and bottom, but as I was intending to add further stamped sentiments and some quote stickers, I didn't worry too much.
After this stage I was able to remove the drawing gum by rubbing it off with an adhesive eraser and my fingers, bringing the paper boats into the foreground again. 
The next step was to add the 'Destination:' and 'Unknown' sentiments from the first stamp set, which I did using Black Soot Archival ink, arranging them at a right angle to each other.
Finally, two appropriate phrases from the Chit Chat sticker book by Tim Holtz completed the tag.
