I personally love to travel: to discover places new to me and to revisit old favorites. And we were lucky in my husband's choice of profession that we got to spend 10 years overseas where we could expand our travel horizons.
One of my (I have to admit) least favorite places to live was Saudi Arabia but it was a new experience and it created my small addiction to all things "camel", including rubber stamps! So I decided to go back in time, to a more adventurous period (the early 1900s) and revisit one of the scenes from "Laurence of Arabia" ... the rider coming out of the sun over the dunes of the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Kahli). But I took a little artistic license and made the rider into a caravan and planted some palm tress (there really aren't any in the Empty Quarter unless you are at an oasis).
I used a Sizzix border die to cut my dunes and added shadows with a Distress marker. I stamped my images in Archival Ink and used another die to cut the sentiment..
