Mail time at FSC

Good morning my lovelies, how's your weekend going? Better than mine I hope, yesterday was  a nightmare, my shopping was nearly 2 hours late being delivered, the lawn mower gave up the ghost and I received a ginormous phone bill (but of course my son never phones mobiles from the landline lol). Anyway onward and upward, at least there's no post today so I can't get any more bills but talking of post we've got a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and our theme this time is 'Mail Time'. Our lucky winner will receive a voucher from our generous sponsor Leo at Flonzcraft so ink up those stamps and join in to be in with a chance of winning! If you need some inspiration check out my talented teamies fab creations.

I've got a bit of a thing for mail art, so I've thrown the lot at this project. I started with a bp from 7 Gypsies, distressed and layered up on some red card. I stamped the image (Two Birds on a Branch from Flonzcraft) on some of my fab perforated postage paper from Chocolate Baroque which I'd masked with some fine masking tape. I inked the around the image with distress ink and layered it up over a postcard blank (also from Chocolate Baroque. I added a postage stamp sentiment using a stamp and die from Whimsy stamps. The postmark and 'bon voyage' stamps are both from Choc Baroque. To finish off I've added some feathers,  sparkly red beads, riibbon, paper flowera and a rose made with tattered pine cone die.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Happy Campers: Bling
Inky Chicks: anything goes
Its all about the vintage: distressing/tearing
Rhedd and Rosie: take flight

Thanks so much for popping by today, have a great day
