I have explored the art of stamping for a number of years. Recently I have been exploring social media as a way of exposing my ideas to a wider audience. I have a passion for colours, whether that's through inks, paints, pencils or pens. I like to include textures to my work to add depth.

Top Hats & Moustaches over at Sandee & Amellie steam
Hi everyone I hope you are well I have for you today
the latest Challenge over at SanDee & amelie's
as you can see from the title the theme this month is
Top Hat's & Moustaches.
I stamped a Katzelkraft stamp steamkatz onto
a naturel, noir, & brun bistre coloured card.
I then glued it onto a Tando Creatives chipboard circle. I had stamped the three men onto to a separate piece and tore each man out and used them as segments.
I tore a piece of faux leather that I had made in an
Andy Skinner online workshop (timeworn).
I placed this across the lower half of the circle.
Next I used Deco art antiquing creams to give a patina
effect and sealed the edges with gold
all of the above was mounted onto a Tando creative clock
that had been given a time worn look
by both Deco art sand texture paste, patina made form
Antiquing cream and
All the above was backed onto a piece of foam board with
a compass focal point in the centre.
why not pop over and take a look at the other
team members piece's of inspiration

That's it for today folk's.
Just a quick thank you to all my followers and a special warm welcome to my new ones
