The Challenge Theme at A Blog Named Hero is New to Me. I went hunting through my Hero Arts stash and found several sets that had never seen ink ... including this New York set by Kelly Purkey. I've been dreaming about my next adventure to New York City, so these stamps were perfect.
Usually when I visit a City, I seldom have a desire to return ... there are just so many other places I haven't seen yet. But New York is different ... as soon as I leave, I'm usually thinking about what I want to do the next time I go (although I will confess that Taxi Rides there are something I like to avoid at all costs if possible).
I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! as my guideline and stamped a free-handed collage background using almost all of the stamps in the set with Taylored Expressions Poppy Seed Ink. I resisted the urge to add some color, because when I think of New York it usually is in shades of grey.
