Not had much time for posting these past few days. The time has just flown by. My good friend, and fellow design team member, Janet, has come to stay for just over a week. We went to HSNW at Port Sunlight for the day on Saturday. It is always a fabulous show. My feet (and back) were exhausted by the end of the day though! A lovely meal out on Sunday, a day at Abakhan today (with lunch), then a bit of crafting. We plan a day in Llandudno, another meal out on Wednesday evening, and on Saturday we will be fusioneering with Sheena at Port Sunlight.
Anyway, enough chat. On to my tag for this weeks challenge. Zoe is hosting this week so please do pop over to the TIO challenge blog and check out the fabulous offerings by my fellow design team members.
It was great fun going through my stamp collection to find suitable stamps for this challenge. Remember ink bottles, and quill pens? No, me neither! I do, however, remember going into the Post Office and watching mail etc. being stamped by the assistant, and twice daily deliveries and collections several times a day. I still have my stamp collection from back then - somewhere! Everything in the post office seemed to be made of wood then, didn't it?
Now on to my interpretation of the theme. My stamps are by Hampton Art - Dragonfly Collage, Paper Artsy, Dimension Fourth - post mark, and Joanna Sheen grab bag - ink bottle and quill. Some of my background stamping is secondary stamping. The Air Mail and Postcard have been stamped on seperate card, cut out and mounted using 3D glue for a bit of dimension. The twine, from my stash was much paler but I smooshed it through the same DI on my messy mat and sprayed with the water mister to age it.
Thanks for stopping by. Your comments are always greatly appreciated.
I live in a beautiful area of North Wales, up in the hills but not too far from civilisation! We run a busy boarding Cattery. I answer the phone and do a little administration. My passion is paper crafting which I have been doing for the past ten years or so. I love getting inky and messy with paints. Nothing better than starting with a clean sheet of card and creating everything yourself. I like to keep my hands busy so when not paper crafting I also knit, crochet, sew, make jewellery, in fact anything that keeps my hands busy. I also enjoy reading.
