Life is a Journey-Tiddly Inks


I ordered this darling stamp from Tiddly Inks several weeks ago, inked it up right away and then that was it.  It sat for awhile until I could figure out what to do with it.  I know I didn't want to just make a card, but something that I could put out all the time and have a reminder/quote to look at daily.

  I paper pieced the bug, her hat, & tires. I used my copics for her face, the suitcases, and road.  I cut a strip of green paper and used my Martha Stewart scissors for the grass, used a circle punch for the sun and just hand cut the rays.  I stamped the sentiment and cut out each word, used ink, paint and a sharpie for the background.  Oh, and I just love that checked border stamp, so cute!!  I also painted the side edges in a black and white stripe pattern.  I love it and think it turned out so cute...plus it's the perfect daily reminder to enjoy the journey of life!

I would like to enter into the following challenges.  
+Charisma Cards-Polka Dots- dot paper on bug, dot doodles
+Crafting by Design-Anything Goes
+City Crafter-Clouds
+Tuesday Throwdown-Make your own background
