Having no Egyptian-themed stamps, the first thing I did was go shopping! I came up empty at my local scrap store, at Michael's, at Jo-Ann's, even at Hobby Lobby. I did manage to pick up a few things at each store, however, so the trips were not wasted! Ha! I was finally successful when I went to my stack of magazines and found the image I have used on the cover (and inside) of the National Geographic from October of 2002!
I used a Ranger #10 tag and adhered my image to it. I also punched out circles from other patterned bits from the same article, then mounted them on scalloped black cardstock. I cut these in half, then adhered them to the left side and bottom edge of my tag to create a border. I was definitely still at a loss as to what to use for a sentiment or quote. Everything I found was just way to serious--until I found one by Mark Twain. Take a look:
