Summer Camp Wk 2 Day 5 - Subway Art

Wow - this was really time consuming but fun and totally worth the effort.  Kelly Rasmussen showed us Sentiment Piecing (aka Subway Art).  I used the same colors (combo #2) as Kelly but I didn't have the stamps she used.  I took out at least 20 or more stamp sets looking for sentiments etc that I thought would go together and fonts that I liked.  Then I did what Kelly suggested - I stamped each sentiment on computer paper that I thought I might use and then cut them out.  I arranged them on the 3.25 x 4.5 in card and when I decided what looked good to me I arranged the stamps on a stamp press.  Then starting from the bottom I stamped sentiments and images one at a time up to the top.  I noticed that the row of little hearts is a bit crooked but I am pleased overall with my first attempt at this.
I used stamps from Hero Arts, Avocado Arts, Sweet 'N Sassy, PaperTrey and Studio Calico.
Thanks for coming by!
