Bike stamp

I had the privilege of using this super cute collection with the cutest bicycle pattern. Perfect for those cute bike-photos. I then remembered that one of the Free downloads had a bike stamp. I Checked out the download section at Teresa Collins Stampmaker web-page found it and made my stamp.


I went a bit wild with mists and stamps on the background.
