Leaning On The Lamp Post?

...Is it all one word? Lamp post...or Lamppost...or Lamp Post...well, whatever it is...the main feature on Day 8 of the fantabulous Christmas tags by Tim is a ... lamp post. And it just so happens that I haven't got that set of stamps that we needed to use...so...I rummaged, rifled and then rummaged some more to find some music score paper or a stamp...nope...not a sausage....well, not a real sausage...I have some of those in the fridge...I was speaking metaphorically or whatever 'they' say, whomever 'they' are.....*blimey, it has been a long day and I am waffling....* Anyways....not a musical thing in sight...so...thankfully...Andrea lent me her music stamp which is an Oxford Impressions stamp...so I improvised and stamped it several times onto cream paper...cos I haven't got any vellum either!




So...to the lamp post...well, I have to say, I improvised this aswell...using the top of a Paper Artsy stamp and then bending the Grungeboard to put embossing ink onto it so I could emboss it black like Tim did....mmmm...let's just say that any self respecting dog wouldn't be inclined to cock his leg against this one...so... that is another set of stamps I need *ROFL* I had planned on using the Grungeboard one from the Seasonal set but I had already used it and it was too small anyway. Overall, I am pleased with the result tho'....and...did you notice...I got the proper flourish stamp now...so there is no stopping me now...hopefully tomorrow the stamps used will be in my collection LOL

I am off to bed now...I spent a FAB day at Andrea's and bless her, she lent me the Santa that looks like David Bellamy so I can remake the tag from the other day! Thanks for looking!

Aha that answers the question 'have you got those stamps yet?' panic over then, and put to good use too I see. Great improvisation Hels, ever resourceful, a true crafter.

It looks good, I didn't have any of the stamps and knew I had seen a lampost somewhere... should have looked harder! Today could be interesting making the tags, as Jen says .. wondering why I started .. but must finish!!
