Travel memories

The challenge at Fashionable stamping this time is Cities Of The World.  My first thought was of course London as my London stamps are getting a lot of use at the moment, then I considered Paris but while scrabbling about in a box of unmounted stamps I found this Venice Stamp by Stamp Camp which I got at Port Sunlight a while ago and has never been used. Very roughly (impressionistic ?) water coloured, mounted on a" cover a page" map stamp and a few extra bits of stamping added.  I think its quite a masculine type of card so I'm putting it on a few challenges
