Road Trip!

Who doesn't love a good road trip?!  My husband, son and I love taking road trips in the summer months even if it's just for the day.  It's so much fun!  That's why I just had to play along with this months challenge at One Layer Simplicity Challenge.  The theme is Road Trip!  And I have the PERFECT stamp set for it!

The subway art type image was made by combining a bunch of the small images and the sentiments  (yes, they are all individual stamps arranged on my acrylic block) from the set (by Inkadinkado).  I had to perform some surgery again on some of the stamps so it would work.  But like I mentioned before it really helps to make your clear stamps more versatile and it does get easier over time.  ;-).  I stamped in Versamark and embossed in clear.  Then I watercoloured overtop.

Also linking up to two other challenges:

Addicted to CAS - code word is "wheels".  See those little campers?  They've got wheels!  Plus, who heard of a road trip without some sort of wheels?  :-)
Addicted to Stamps and More - it's their CAS card challenge this week.  Right up my alley!
Less is More - it's their "lucky dip challenge" and the theme is "round and round".  Well, wheels go round when you're on the road, right?  Perhaps, I'm reaching but I like it!  ;-)

I have more cards to share but in another post.  Thanks for visiting and hope you have an awesome day!


  1. FUN! I love the watercolour technique, although I can see your next one in the gallery too, and that's probably more my style - I love how you've showcased how you can use the same supplies to make cards that feel different! Thanks for joining us at OLS!

  2. What a fun thing to do and how creative to think of it! Really great use of clear embossing and the watercoloring is just beautiful!! Love it!

  3. Great design. Love the white embossing with the watercolor over top - such beautiful colors! Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

  4. I do like the subway style text layout and the watercolour effect. Thanks so much for playing along with ASM this week!

    BTW - I still find it hard to perform surgery on my stamps!

  5. I love to do surgery on my stamps!! This is a cool idea and very cleverly put together. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS and ATSM x

  6. What a lovely piece of subway art. Great camper vans! Thanks for playing along at ATCAS.
