Mayflower Day

Over on Gingersnap Challenge Blog there was at the beginning of the month reasons to stamp in September. 
I had quite a shock today as I suddenly noticed it was September 16th, Mayflower Day. I wanted to produce something in recognition of this day since some of my distant ancestors went to America on the Mayflower, so making up the American branch of my family.
I needed to produce something super fast, and here it is. In fairness I had an idea which stamp set I was going to use but not how. The ribbon that has "journey" and the start of "adventure" on it has been fixed to the scroll with sealing wax and a seal stamp stamped into it whilst hot.

Love the scroll with the sealing wax....how fab to know your ancestors were on the Mayflower, although it can't have been fab for them! That means they may have walked on the Barbican in Plymouth.....next time I am there I shall picture the scene......Congrats on the DT for SCD by the way!

I love your art. Your blog is very appealing to me, even though I have no idea how to stamp.
