Walk Like an Egyptian


Tag it on has another fantastic challenge this week, but I was horrified when I found out it was an Egyptian theme, I don't posses a single Egyptian theme stamp! Fortunately one of the first trips I made to Kanban found me purchasing card stock I wouldn't now buy, but thank goodness I didn't know better then. Not that I don't like Egyptian themes, more that I am now most definitely a stamp addict and wouldn't dream of using pre printed images unless of course I hadn't got the right stamp!

This then is Walk like an Egyptian to Kanban. All pre printed images except the cartouch at the bottom of the tag. Thought I'd better do something original and looked up my name in hieroglyphs then made the thingy in photoshop.

Gonna save this little cartouch, never know when I might need to spell my name in ancient Egyptian!

Enjoyed the challenge this week and hope my effort isn't too poor compared to the amazing stuff that is entered on this challenge.
Best go see!

Like you Michelle I was horrified at the eygptiian theme as not one stamp I have would do but I have some of that kanban stuff too and although I have put it to one side I have not done anything with it - You have inspired me to have a play - Though I would Never be able to sort out my name in Hyroglyphics! You clever thing its amazing!

This is fantastic Michelle. I love the images and your name is great. I think there were a few of us mortified by this weeks challenge. I don't posses one thing Egyptian, stamps, images, nothing, but I have had a play and am getting something together, but it is still work in progress at the moment.
