Travel With Artistic Outpost

Happy Saturday AO lovers! As you know, this month's theme for the Referral Challenge is "travel". There are so many sets and images from AO that you can use for this (I used seven). The possibilities are endless.  Make something with this theme and link it up for a chance to win a fabulous prize package. You have until May 31st to enter.
I decided I wanted to use several images from AO that depict travel, so I needed a larger foundation. I went with a jumbo tag, which are my favorite. I colored my background with Sailboat Blue Color Wash and Picket Fence Distress Stain and water. The propellers from Industrial Chic are stamped in Picket Fence Stain, which gave them a wonderful almost watermark quality. I stamped all my travel images (Huck Finn, Diesel Punk, Steampunk, Paris Exposition, Industrial Chic, French Flight) in Jet Black Archival onto Specialty Stamping Paper (which really shows every detail) and then cut them out. I colored them all in with Distress Markers. All of my sentiments (A Lovely Day, Huck Finn) are also stamped in Jet Black Archival.
Here's hoping you travel with Artistic Outpost soon!
