The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "the stamp I love but don't use". I've had these americana blueprint stamps kicking around in my craft room for a little while now and much as I love them, there's just not much call for 4th July stamps here in the UK! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give them an outing :)
The right panel was stamped with the subway places from the Remnants stamp set and I added a vintage Uncle Sam panel from the Seasonal paper stash to hide the fact that the subway image didn't quite reach to the bottom of the panel. Finally I stamped and coloured the route 66 image from the Road Trip set and fixed it in place, then fixed the panel to the wood background.
Phew, that's about it! It was a lot of work but it was so nice to finally give these stamps an airing out of their packaging! :)
Supplies I used included:
Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
