Road Trip


I've been splatting again.  I couldn't help it - it's my current go-to embellishment and I like the little bit of interest it adds to the white space (and the unpredictability!!).

I'm playing along with this month's One Layer Simplicity Challenge - Road Trip.


And at Simon Says Monday Challenge where the theme is Journey.


And at The Paper Players where the theme is Three of Anything.


I've used three stamps.  I inked the two bottom stamps up with Distress Inks - Dusty Concord, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint - then spritzed them lightly before stamping.  The sunglasses are stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

The swoosh stamp at the bottom is from Hero Arts Brush Strokes, the text stamp and the sunglasses stamp are unbranded clear stamps that I picked up after I'd been to the Port Sunlight show from a rival company that had set up across the road.  I only paid £1 for three stamp sets.  The sunglasses image isn't very good quality, but it's nothing that a black pen can't fix.
