Modes of Transport at FSC


Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month it's 'Modes of Transport'  so lots of choice here.

I've opted for a bicycle ride and used an old Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) stamp, although I have cut away 2 of the boys.  The background is Artistic Outpost (Serenity) and by masking, I 'extended' the field.  I added some Inkylicious birds to the sky.  The sentiment is again Artistic Outpost from Lovely Day, which seemed to fit so well with the image.
I've used a Tim Holtz 'Burlap' stencil for the base.

We have Flonzcraft as our Sponsor and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store, but don't forget to qualify you must use real stamping that follows the theme.
For all the details and more inspiration from the DT, please pop over to the main blog.

I am entering this at:
  Craft Stamper - Anything Goes
  Penny Black and More - Anything Goes

Thanks for calling in today and enjoy the rest of your day.

Brings back memories when a cycle ride was a pleasure Avril, not so much these days with so much traffic. The quote goes perfectly with the scene and rhen the sentiment at the bottom.

Wow! What a superb variety and use of stamps, they all work together beautifully. I also love the colour palette which gives your card a real vintage feel. You've used your different stamps in lots of different ways and I really love the end result, it's a lovely card Avril. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
