S for Stamp
Here's no. 24 ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha Dictionary Challenge where the letter is S. Lots of words beginning with S but I dismissed the stone/slate, sewing and seaside themes and have chosen STAMP
........how obscure I hear you cry!! :)
There are two colours - Saffron and Scarlet - and I decided to do a Scottish Tartan background using Stazon of course - Sunflower, Blazing Red and Cactus Green. I used strips cut off a new set of stamps to stamp the stripes.
I guess you won't believe me but two weeks ago I decided I'd do a yellow and red scottish tartan background for S - I looked through the S's when I was deciding what colour to do for Q. I also realised I only had one really bright ATC - F for Flourescent - so needed to do another bright yellow. I had to smile when The Craft Barn had a tartan week last week!! Great minds and all that!
I've also amalgamated Stamping (action) Stamp (inky image) Stamp (postal) and Songbird which is a Crafty Individuals stamp CI-180 on Shrink Plastic, coloured with promarkers and cut out using decorative edged Scissors! I've added the Darkroom Door Special Delivery stamp, the torn dictionary definition and the alcohol inked Thicker.
Can't believe I've managed to keep going with this challenge and whilst I don't want it to end, I'm looking forward to finishing my album. Thanks for looking and for your kind comments as always!!
