GC69: Tiled Time for "Ancient Ages" Challenge

Our newest Chestnut Theme Challenge on Gingersnap Creations is "Ancient Ages" where we celebrate the ancient civilizations.


I couldn't make up my mind which stamps to use - so I used a bunch. I stamped an old architectural textbook page as a base and overstamped a variety of "ancient" characters before I sponged distress ink all over everything - including my fingers.

Tiled Time
Stamps:
Buddha postage (Cherry Pie); greek heroes (Stamp Francisco); egyptian lady (Beeswax); griffin and architectural text page (Above the Mark); roman soldier (Stampington)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip (Stampin Up)
Ink: Timber Brown and Saddle Brown (StazOn); Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold (Ranger Distress Ink)
Tools: 1 1/4" punch (Stampin Up); sponges

See how the Gingers are making history over on Gingersnap Creations!
