Across the Sea

This summer UKScrappers held a series of 10 Summer Scrapbooking Challenges, open to the end of September; the third of these was to create our own background paper using three or more rubber stamps. I have a set of doily stamps that I don't use very often, so I took this opportunity to use all five of them, using different coloured inks for each stamp. However, I did this without thinking about what photo I would be using, and had to go way back in the archives to find one that would work with it. I think that next time I will pick my photo(s) first and then just use one or two colours of ink.

The photo I did choose is one of my cousin and her family that she sent me one Christmas. They live in the US, hence the title.
