It's all about the Journey!

Welcome to Justrite's Day Four of their May Release!  Today, JustRite is featuring a new background stamp, The Journey, and the set, Monogram your Journey!  I LOVE me some monogramming!  I think you know that by now!  I decided to use these sets for a girl graduation card.  At first glance, these stamps would probably go into the more masculine column, but I think they fabulously work for feminine creations too!

First, I stamped this wonderful background stamp, The Journey, with VersaFine Smokey Gray ink before tearing all around the edges.  Using a sponge dauber with Tim Hotlz Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, I daubed randomly on the stamped image.

The anchor image, sentiment and letter A from Monogram Your Journey is stamped with VersaFine Smokey Gray ink.  I then scissor trimmed the image and used my circle punches for the centers, sentiment and letter. The edges are also sponge daubed with the same ink.  I also went into the banners on the anchor image with the worn lipstick pink ink.  Spellbinders Stars Five dies cut the stars on the card and Want2Scrap Pearls embellish the star edges! 5/8" solid gray plaid ribbon bow and Prima Lady Godiva Strawberry Ice Flowers are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thank so much for stopping by today!  I know you will be inspired by the following JustRite designers!  Click on the designer's name, taking you to each respective blog!  Enjoy the journey!
