Happy stamping Saturday to all of you! This week marked the Design Team's monthly blog hop, of either using the Huck Finn or Route 66 stamp sets. I choose the latter, and decided to do a postcard, which is a little different. This stamp set is so much fun, and I really see a ton of themed uses for it on projects.
I stamped the map image with Pumice Stone Distress Ink several times on to Specialty Stamping Paper. Next, I stamped the other images onto this map paper using Jet Black Archival Ink, colored them in with Distress Markers, and then cut them out. I used thinned out Gesso to tone down the background images a little, so the stamped images would not be lost against them. I stamped the other images from the plate onto the background paper with Jet Black Archival. I adhered this to white cardstock, giving it a border. Last, I added back a little color when I stamped my last image from the plate, a Saguaro Cactus, in Lettuce Adirondack Pigment Ink.
I wish you a fun and creative weekend!
