I confess: I am a SUCKER for a good, usable set of stamps.
So yeah, I was stoked to see these sets from the new Travel Girl Collection by October Afternoon:
Streets of Paris background stamp
Traveler Clear Stamp Set
See the World Rubber Stamp Set
I vowed to use each set as soon as they showed up on my door...here is the result :)
Galaxy Gold) for the map background...just stamped twice under the photo area.
Galaxy Gold Brilliance and the wee heart stamp that is part of the red rubber set + the 'you are here' arrow, and stamped right on the photo. Love this effect...I may have passed right by that tiny heart, but when you use it repetitively it stands out! The red ink used on the 'you are here' arrow is Rocket Red Gold Brilliance...red+gold, need I say more?!
If you read my blog, you KNOW I focus on journaling lol...so I let the stamp set lead my way here. I drew lines right on top of the map background, then added the icon stamps right into my journling. This has always been a favorite 'technique' of mine...it's fun to see the fonts + images mixed in with my own handwriting, I think.
And that airplane with the trailing banner under my photo?
That guy will be used.
Have a great day :)
