Over at simon says stamp and show blog
the theme of the week is,
if you don't have one, you can use a stamp
you have had for never used.

click the link to head over there to check out all the details.

I am also entering this in the monthly challenge
over at the artistic stamper creative team blog
coz the theme is THINGS WITH WINGS.

This also fits the bill for Sunday Stampers Challenge
over at Ink on my fingers Hel's blog
this week its CHARMING.

I have made a shadow box for my entry.

I made a tag a few weeks ago & was quite proud of it,
so I decided to make a smiler piece for the wall.
here's a picture of said tag that the inspiration came from.

the stamps that I used to fit the challenge
(that I have had for a while & never used)
are the dotty strip, off the seriously art stamp plate,
& the flourish one off the botanical art stamp plate.
that are of course Wendy Vecchi's.

The distress ink's used are,
 bundled sage, tumbled glass,Forrest moss, peeled paint,
stormy sky, rusty hinge, spiced marmalade,
wild honey & brushed corduroy.

I used grunge paper for all the cut out pieces,
I used rock candy crackle paint on the jar to give it a sheen,
I also used a piece of ball chain & a small charm
to hang from it.

The flower & butterfly centers are from dangle earrings,
(got from a charity shop, 3 pairs for a pound [bargain ha!])

the sentiment piece was cut from the
classic ovals & scalloped ovals nest abilities,

Every thing has been stamped in
jet black or coffee archival ink.

The other stamps used are also Wendy Vecchi's
here's a picture of all of them.

I haven't altered the shadow box at all (coz I like it the way it is)
I just took out what was in it.

It was hard to photograph in the frame because of the reflection
so I took it out to get better shots of it,
& also show you the dimension.

Hope you like it!
That's it from me today,
off to link up,
Thanks for stopping by,
back soon
