Sunday Stamper - Week 338 - Mr Bojangles **Two Week Challenge**

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy *nearly Christmas*  Sunday to you all!  Thank you all for your fab entries into last weeks challenge, it was great to see you all playing along.  The theme this week is... MEN.  You can interpret the challenge how you like: make something for the chap in your life, make something including a blokey theme... or just add a man on to your art, like what I did... the choice, it be yours!  As we have Christmas and New Year fast approaching, this challenge will be a two-weeker so you have plenty time to play along. To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!*  and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 3rd January 2015.

WOW, that is the first time I have typed 2015... I don't know about you but 2014 has whizzed past in a blur... has it been a good year for you?  I hope so.  Anyways, on with my entry for this week (or fortnight!)  Remember yesterday I posted my latest Compendium of Curiosities challenge... using Pocket Pages... CLICK HERE if you missed it.   This is one of the tags that I made to fit into a Pocket Page.

The base is coloured with Distress Spray Stains - I used Antique Linen, Wild Honey, Frayed Burlap and a smidge of Vintage Photo and once it was dry, I blended Rusty Hinge Distress Ink to add a bit more depth to the colour.  I only used one stamp set for my tag - Paris Memoir from Tim's collection - the background was stamped using Potting Soil Archival (IMO, Wendy Vecchi got it SPOT ON when she designed this colour Archival... tis me fave) and the old fella was stamped in Black Archival, cut out and then coloured with Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain DI's.  The Fleur is stamped into card, coloured with Rusty Hinge and then popped onto the tag.  Of course, I had to add my little harlequins... I think they just finish me designs off nicely... I would be lost without that ickle stamp!  Old Fella's pose suggests he should be carrying something, so he has his heart full of dreams in his hand.

And there you have it... the final Sunday Stamper for 2014.   May I take this opportunity to say a massive big thank you to every one of you who has taken time out to join in with my little challenge.  It really does mean the world to me that after nearly seven years of the Sunday Stamper, you still enjoy playing along. It warms me cockles, it do :O))   I shall away now, I have a few more Christmas cards to finish but I will be back tomorrow with another project, this one is a special one I have done using Darkroom Door.   Thanks for looking... have a great day!  TTFN
