I'll never learn!

Spotted these Runway stamps on a challenge blog and of course I had to have them, I never stop to consider what I'm actually going to do with them, stamp then on bits of paper and stare blankly at them.  Saw some lovely examples on Meggysway blog which made me decide to have a play with them tonight.  Just messed about with distress inks, stencils etc. I used a stamp from Artistic outpost London to stamp the buildings at the bottom, Paris, London and New York from Tim Holtz papillon set and the top wording a Crafty Individuals freebie, I overstamped the whole piece with Hero Arts friendship stamp to try and tone it down a bit. I'm not over impressed with this but at least I've made a start with them!
