I love the vintage flair of this set. It's called Route 66, and it's just full of fun road trip images. Not only is it good for cards, but it would also be good for vacation layouts. I used a watercolor crayon directly on the stamp for the motorcycle here. I just misted the stamp with water, then colored the stamp. I lost detail here, but I liked the rough image. I manipulate my Artistic Outpost images this way a lot. Sometimes I want a clean image with all the incredible detail, sometimes I want just parts of an image, or a muddier version. AO stamps can handle different treatments pretty well, because they have a lot of depth. Making each card look entirely different is half the fun! If you want to see how detailed the motorcylce really is, click on the link and see for yourself. You can also stay tuned here, because I have another card made with this set.
