Stamptacular - #6

It's been a couple of weeks since I was last at Stamptacular Sunday and I had been thinking of practising a bit more masking with my stamps and this sketch suited it to a T.....how could I refuse to join in? LOL
I love the look of all the great collage stamps you can get........I drool for quite a few!!.......and the other day I took a long hard look at exactly what is is that appeals and tried to recreate the look with the stamps that I have.

All the stamps used here did not cost me a penny!!!....ooh sorry.......I lie.....the letter stamps for the word "time" cost me 99p...what a bargain.....so much so that when I drove to the shop a couple of weeks ago.........hoping to get a couple more different fonts.............they did not have any left and did not expect to get anymore :(
The rest were either free from a magazine, part of the subscription to CS from Paperartsy or part of a prize quite some time ago (again Paperartsy)......I was itching to use the ticket stamp that came as a freebie with Craft Stamper this month......The papers were again from the wodge that I got from Lyndsay (SSBFL)........I realised after a while that the papers looked familiar and it turns out I have quite few of them already in some 6x6 pads.........it's the same old story............had for ages can't bring myself to cut them.........so using these is not bringing me out in a cold sweat in case I can't get anymore! LOL.................................The wording "is Relative" was computer generated.

Here is a bit of a close up of the main panel.....Thanks for looking and thanks again Stamptacular for the great sketch..........will really be using this often................off to practise some more.

  10. I really like the colours of these
    cards and the fact that you have used your stamps in such a creative way to produce your own collage look.
    I also wanted to ask you whether you could give me some advice on images on my blog? Why do some images get bigger when you click on them and others don't. It seems as if you have alot of digital knowledge. I have spent time trying to work it out but have not found the answer. Any help much appreciated. Many thanks.
