Simply Spiffing

Stamped and embossed this cheeky chappy from Time Travellers with black E P onto craft card then coloured with Distress Inks. For the background I used white E P with this stamp from Indigo Blu (just the music part). Also used Tim’s Journeyman tissue tape which was added randomly but very sparingly.

Part of the Ephemera 3 collection of stamps from Paperartsy was stamped onto a spare piece of cardstock which was coloured also with DI’s then roughed up the edges a little. For the finishing touches I used a few bits from the G45 Typography papers and a framed die before using my fave Alphabet Stamps for the spiffing and old chap sentiment.

Brrr, well this was a surprise this morning. Winter is well and truly here the fluffy white stuff has started flurrying around in huge swirls. Took a quick photo from inside … I was not going outside for anything.

    Fabulous piece Shirl, a real mixed media creation with a lot of flair to it! Love your snowy pictures too and I had to laugh when reading Dot’s comment. My poor Australian family who are visiting are freezing (and we don’t have any snow yet)…. Oh and thanks for adding it to our Artistic Stamper challenge!
