This is my collage for 'Wednesday Stamper', and the theme is 'games'. This one was hard to do, I threw out my first background which turned out 'grungy' and too dark. The only stamps used on this are the alphabet stamps , some of which are foam ones from Walmart. The metal edged tag and the ticket are the only embellishments. I used Tim Holtz distress inks for the background ( with a scan of my Monopoly board) along with a few oil pastels and a bit of white here and there. I'm breathing a sigh of relief that this is done!!!

Thank you much for being concerned about my comments 'problem.' :-) I really am fine though. Even took off that awful Word Verification thing. No need for nice friends to suffer for my carelessness.

I still have the 'check my comments' thing on, for a bit though.

I had a closer look at your Monopoly Board and was fascinated to see the American addresses on the cards instead of the original English names like Park Lane and Piccadilly Circus! There was something on tv here last week about the Monopoly Game and a picture flashed on the screen of a board with Melbourne street names. I want it!! I have the Elvis version of Monopoly, but nobody to play it with :-(
