Enjoy the Journey

Howdy all.  Hope everyone is safe and warm. Lots of snow piled up on the East coast right now.  We were lucky and didn't get any of the storm here. 
I have been wanting to play along with the Vintage Journey - Vintage Travel Challenge this month. I finally found time this morning to play.
 I started with a mix of Stampers Anonymous stamps to get my mojo flowing.  

I stamped a repeated pattern on the top and the bottom and the map stamp in the middle. I then highlighted with watercolor pencils all the images.  I splattered a little mist onto the background. I added in the stenciled words and the fun image on vellum. 

Have a wonderful Sunday!
