Where will your passport take you?

Life continues to be crazy and time limited.  I dream of vacation.  Sigh...

Anyway, I was very excited to see Simon Says Stamp and Show's Passport to Fun challenge.  Unfortunately, the craziness didn't let up and time got away from me before I could make it down to my craft room.

I did manage to give the project some thought though.  I thought about doing my version of some 1920's travel posters.  I was happy to see Simon Says Stamp and Show's vintage challenge Inspired By theme.  I used my travel poster inspiration to transport me away from the chaos to a land flowing with Distress Ink and Stains.

I started with Glossy Paper from Ranger Ink.  Most of the images were stamped with archival ink.  I used Distress Ink, Distress Stain, alcohol ink markers, and even some archival ink to color the images.  It was fun!

This week taught me that I need to make time to be creative.  It is definitely therapeutic :)
