Lost Coast Designs Mayan Blog Hop Day 1

Hello all. We are doing a Blog Hop over at Lost Coast Designs. I'm your first stop on the hop.
 I have made a card for day 1 of this blog hop. You can find this stamps here  for the main stamp and here for the background stamp.
 I was going for the feel of what you might see in a museum.

I started by stamping the main image with distress ink on a cream color cardstock.
Then I stamped Mayan stele with a lighter color of distress ink all over the background. I was okay for it not stamping perfect because it was going to look like something from thousands of years ago anyway. Then I layered it on a piece of black cardstock and then onto a dark brown card base.
I like I said I'm your first stop on this blog hop so here is the list of where you go next.
