Good day followers and friends. Despite the cold, grey, rainy day, or maybe that is due to, I have been feeling a little inspired. After getting out Panduro's Pojkar stamp set yesterday I have been having a play with some of the other stamps. You can see BBQ boy in yesterdays post. Today I have been playing with boy and his toy ship. This was supposed to be a birthday card but it has ended life as an ATC. Say la doo da.....
Here's where I started with a stamp on some plain white card. Usually when I am paper piecing I use dies, which do make life a bit easier, but as I say to people who don't have one of those machines, knives and scissors existed first and the Victorians were renowned for paper clipping. This is a nice simple stamp so I have gone totally old fashioned and clipped him out, the new term for that being fussy cut. I'm feeling old fashioned so I'm clipping.....
How cute is that?!! I raided the scraps box, hurrah, so I don't have names for the papers except I know his trousers are Basic Grey Curio Cabriole cur-3035, cos some of that was still desk from last night. And I managed to find it beneath the mountains of other stuff on my desk. I had decided I would spend some time putting away when I got into May but here we are and well..... I digress. I used a copper scrap for the bottom of the boat. Bling. I cut Basic Grey Curiosity COL-394 using Tim Holtz ATC die. No corners this time. I have edged with Versamagic Night Sky, which is also the ink I used for all the stamping.
