Sunday Stampers Week 199 - Transport

Hello my Fellow Bloggers

The challenge this week over at Sunday Stampers http://pinkleart.blogspot.co.uk/ is transport.  As I am keeping my railway stamps under wraps until David's birthday in August, the only other thing I could find, other than a camper van and a union jack mini is my balloon stamp.  Since it is one of my all time favourites I was more than happy to ink it up again, even though the balloon is an out-moded form of transport. 



I used distress inks on the background, overstamped with my Hero Arts newsprint stamp, with words from Sam Poole's vintage aviation set and the balloon, which is embossed, is Crafty Individuals.  The ribbon is vintage seam binding which I coated in dusty concord distress stain.  I have put a TH fragment over the word flight to highlight it.  I distressed the edges of the tag with a pair of scissors and went around the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

Hope you like it, if so, please leave me a comment.  I always try to visit everyone who leaves me a comment so that I can leave one for them too.  Crafty hugs, Anne x
