Modes Of Transport At FSC

Not much been going on in my ‘Crafty Cranny’ simply because I have been MIA again (another short break to the UK).

That’s the holidays over for the time being, next break is AUSTRALIA.

FSC wants to see ‘Modes Of Transport’ for this month’s challenge which the lovely Dani picked as her theme.

It’s all about my stamp journal again, love the neat, crisp, clean look of these pages.  Getting to use loads of my stamps which have been gathering dust for tooooo long.  Only inks and stamps are used in this book … see first pages here.

For these pages I did a “before and after” starting with the horse then moving onto a motor vehicle before finishing with a van.

By the way the motor vehicle and the van set were both virgin stamps.  It’s OK, both wrists have been slapped, especially as I have had the PaperArtsy set for about five years and the car for two.

Reverse masked the horses then dappled with coloured spots.

Can you believe that the last time I used these Visible Image stamps was in April 2015 here just after I had bought them at Ally Pally.

Masked off the ‘AFTER’ and also the van then stamped over with a crackle stamp.

All stamps used for the journal pages, inks are a mixture of  Versafine and Memento.



Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    wow…a magnificent selection of stamps, they are definitely the hero of these pages Shirley. I love how it starts with ‘horse power’ and moves on through the ages, and the reverse masking is a fun way to give these ponies some character. Love this! See you at the airport, when I find it 😉

    I have this Paper Artsy set and although I have inked every stamp once I have only used the sentiment more than once! I am enjoying those pages Shirley, you have such a beautiful collection of stamps… xx

    Super pages Shirley, having a couple an a big fan of horses. Never fails to amaze me how many products we use on a single piece of artwork, to my mind though it just goes to prove that we do need all those craft goodies.

    Great journal page Shirl. I once had an idea to use all of my stamps in this way but I soon grew tired of having to clean them all, so needless to say, I didn’t get much further than the fist couple of pages! Super idea and a superb collection and use of stamps. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
