Route 66 collection from Artistic Outpost, really got my motor running! You can also join in the January Referral Program "Anything Goes" with Artistic Outpost stamps. Simon Says Stamp and Show wants us to "Embrace the Old" and my stamps are old as are the days of "Route 66," so we are taking a ride and join in. Frilly and Funkie wants us to "Follow Your Muse" and my route, other than Route 66, is to incorporate more color. Well along with keeping it a little on the grunge side, I could not help but think of the days of "Neon" signs and pretty much let that be my guide. I knew I wanted some bright colors as well as the vintage tones, so I kept my "Motel and Route 66" signs on the bright side and this is what I did. These were stamped with Peeled Paint, Barn Door, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemon Distress Inks and then clear embossed. The "Route 66" was then masked and I stamped the little map with Archival Coffee in a random pattern, but covering the entire piece of card stock. I did use pieces of paper to cover stamped areas as I did not want overlapping map text. Peeled off my masking and then heat seat. The background was also inked with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. The old car was colored using Stampin Up chalks.
