Blurfing???

... do you ever do things that you think... "arrrrgh" afterwards? Well, that was me last night... I was doing bit of Blurfing (I have heard it called this and with this propensity to join one word with another, I rather like this word... oh and another I heard... glamping... which is posh camping I assume) Anyways... there I was on this rather amazing blog and I spotted a stamp that the blogger had used and instantly it went right onto my wishlist. So, I tried to leave a comment for said blogger to ask where the stamp came from... and Error 503 kept coming up. So, I thought "aha, you can't catch me out" ... and I bookmarked the blog. And promptly lost the bookmark... and I can't find it... so... this here stamp I saw... you might be able to help me with it. It is a bird... and the bird is made up of watchparts and gears and has a really cool beak that is also made of curly watch parts... and I NEED to own it!!!



I have exhausted myself searching yonder internet looking for it... I have found a few steampunk birds but not this one **sob** which is why I am late late late with my post today... cos I spent all this morning faffing with Mr Google and getting absolutely nowhere.




So, this tag was made as a challenge to me... use Wild Honey, Broken China and Vintage Photo Stains and/or Inks... and some Perfect Pearls and some Glassine... and Tissue Tape... and the Bird Alterations and Tattered Florals Alterations. I know, not such a big hardship really (lol... I like this kind of challenge) I used that FAB technique I learnt at Ranger U and that the Duke of Distress had on his blog the other day... pouncing PP powders onto Glassine and then heating... the stuff in the Glassine melts, grabs the PP's and then seals them in!!! How coolio is that!!! Oh and I made a little nest for the birdy from thin strips of Glassine... the design is totally cribbed from one of Tim's 12 Tags 2010... oooh, I hope he does them again this year!


Right... gotta dash, have a date with the Sunday Stamper and of course, Alan Carr on Radio 2 at 6pm... tis the best time of the week... I hope he is on this week... he had a week off last week and I did so miss him!! Thanks for looking... enjoy your evening, oh and if you know the stamp I am on about... please do let me know!!! TTFN

Hiya! I have a bit of a photographic memory for images (nothing else just images!!! HOL)
I think you might mean the Scrolls Work Stamps one #9014 Tweet Tock. Unfortunately they are going out of business and I can only see it available on a large plate of other stamps here.

Fab birds nest idea Hels and the tag is altogether gorgeous. I bought a pad of the glassine from Jennie at Ally Pally and only managed to use it for the first time last week to make scrunched up flowers. I was really chuffed to see Tim's post covering different things you can do with the stuff and can't wait to try them out.

You could try going back through your 'history' to the sites you visited.

Ooops, I forgot to add... If you bookmarked the blog, check your 'recently bookmarked' or check the bottom of the list... Uuuuhhhmmm, can you tell I've done this before?
