Polar Express

This layout is inspired by the following sketch challenge from Let's Get Sketchy:


And here is my layout....


Just a couple notes. When working with alphabet stamps, especially when they've been handed down to you from someone else and this is the first time you're using them, it's important to make sure the letters are facing the right way! I actually don't mind the backwards E too much but I certainly would not have done that on purpose! Also, the green ticket was something Liam got in class when they had a Polar Express day at school but the green was a little too bright for this layout so I scuffed it up with some brown ink. It gives it a little more personality, I think!
