Gone Fishing …

Gone Fishing

is our new challenge at FSC for the month of July.

This is a stamping challenge, so please use a stamp must be the focal image on your project.

Do you have stamps of fish?  Or a person/people fishing on a pier or in a boat?  Then please join in the fun.  It is Summer in the Northerm Hemisphere, but fishing is something that you do all year round.  Here, in Portland, in the middle of Winter,  it is Blue Fin Tuna season … so it is full-on with fishermen in town.  After all, the fish are already wet so they don’t notice the rain.

This month I’ve made 3 ATC’s.   The first one shows a PaperArtsy stamp that was a gift from Shirley when she attended one of the craft shows in England last year (thanks Shirley).

The second one uses a stamp from Flonzcraft.  This is a favourite of mine … there just seems to be something very sentimental about a grandfather and child fishing.

The third ATC is a priceless memory that I bet many men have.  Many hours of their childhood spent fishing.

The stamp is also from Flonzcraft.

And finally, here all all three ATC’s together.  The fish are from Rubber Dance (Something Fishy)

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org. We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

 I hope that you will hunt out your fishing stamps and join us at FSC!

Just a note to let you know that I have changed my blog from blogger to wordpress.  I’m really happy with the change but this means that there are no longer any ‘followers’ list. If you like what I do and would like to follow – I have a ‘subscribers’ option on the right side-bar.
Thank you to everyone who has followed me over the years and I hope that you subscribe for future posts.

    A touch of nostalgia which draws on the heart, yet very much vintage modern. These are exceptional individual art pieces. Fantastic Dot.
