I love my mobile phone - well truth be known I don't love my mobile phone at all, it does have it's uses but I could live without it most days. BUT I found some brilliant stamps in the sales and one of them relates to a mobile phone and I thought it was so funny that I wanted to use it straight away!
Hel Sheridan who runs Sunday Stampers each week (yes, THE Hels Sheridan who is off to the CHA in a day or so!!) has chosen 'Things that Fly' this week for her Sunday Stampers challenge Week 239. I could not resist using my new stamps.
This week at Anything But A Card the theme for the challenge is 'Things with Wings' and I hope this qualifies me to enter that challenge too. I was lucky enough to win in their last challenge and I was so thrilled that here I am back again.
The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque. I made the background using Faber-Castell Soft Pastels and also Pan Pastels, overstamped with a bubble wrap stamp by Creative Expressions. I sealed the whole tag with Ranger Glue and Seal as the soft pastels are not permanent unless sealed.
I coloured the heart and wings (which also has little cogs on it) and the mobile phone with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Distress Inks. The vintage silk ribbon is dyed with Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concorde Distress Stains. The words - mobile and phone are part of the stamp set and the other words are stamped with my bargain typewriter stamp set that I found on that well known on-line auction site.
I hope you see the amusing side of this stamp set, there are plenty other unusual stamps in the set too. Thank you for visiting and if you leave me a comment, I really appreciate it and will always do my best to return the compliment. Hugs, Anne x
