Things with Wings! New monthly Artistic Stamper theme

Could not pass on posting something on 1.1.11!


And to kick start the creative year how about having a go at The Artistic Stamper monthly challenge for January which is
Here is my thing.......if you'll pardon the expression! LOL

It's a scrapling know....the bit that is left over after you cut a square card from an A4 piece of card stock?
Stamped and embossed the urgent label using Ranger silver EP (it's a really nice silver not too brassy if you get my drift!) onto a piece of card stock that had been sprayed with very pale blue inks I think it was a very watered down broken china but I sprayed the card a while ago and can't be sure! Then Perfect Pearls Spray pearl sprayed over.
...cut it out punched the hole and added an eyelet and ribbon....tattered the edges and inked with DI weathered wood.
...stamped the air mail words in weathered wood and the post card image in worn lipstick
....used my finger to smear some Inca Gold paste around the edges
...stuck the wings and tag to the card with silicone glue.

Me thinks this will come in handy as a "sorry I forgot your birthday" type card or even a "sorry I'm sure I'm going to miss your birthday" type card.....HOL

You really must pop over to see all the other much more creative "Things with Wings" that the rest of the team have made.
Big waves to Alison who is the new team member :)

So don't forget.............the monthly challenge is "Things with Wings"
The rules are simple... all you need to do is make a piece of art, be it a card, ATC, wall art, altered art, scrapling ;)... just remember that it must include some rubber stamping and the theme... and... if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry you will be entered into the draw twice! The prize is £15 worth of stamps from the Artistic Stamper shop... along with the KlingOn to mount them onto.
I hope you get chance to play at the challenge... it is open until January 31st and the winner will be chosen by shortly after :)

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
