This kit is filled with so many goodies the inspiration was overflowing.
I laid the stencil over areas and sponged on brown dye ink over the stencil. I spritzed black glimmer mist around the edges.
Inside the kit there were two new stamps and I used one of them as my main focal point on the cover. I stamped it using Ranger archival ink. The image inspired me to create a travel theme. I found a variety of travel stamps to add more voyage themed details.
I outlined my images with watercolor pencils to provide shadowing and make the images pop.

Simon Says Stamp blog!
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember® event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, life documenting, art journaling, and many forms of altering and expressing art.
Head over to fantastic Dan's blog to see what he created using the Art Journalling Kit!
