Sunday Stamper - Week 199 - On The Road Again

I have an old article about a new type of Tandem that my dear old Grandad  designed & made around the late 1940s so I copied this & used for my background.  I used several DI's over a few cog masks cut from my Silhouette, splashed with water to distress further then over stamped with a 'splodge' & 'watch' stamp from '7 Gypsies'.  I stamped the 'cycling' stamp (The Artistic Stamper) in black & coloured with more DI's.  I cut a TH rosette out of Fancy Pants card & attached a metal cog (TH) & wing bought from a craft fair, mounted the background onto cream then black card & attached some bakers twine.  I coloured & stapled the phrase (Artistic Stamper) then added Rock Candy & attached to card.  I tried to shape the 'cycling' stamp to add a bit of depth.  Very grungy!


  1. Beautiful card Sue. A lovely way to use memories of your Grandad too. Hugs Rita xx

  2. WOW! This is absolutely gorgeous, right up my street (geddit? street? transport? hahaha, sorry, I am a bit bonkers today lol) Anyways... popping the wing on the rosette - GENIUS!!! Love all the elements and the collage style is perfect... Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper... have a good week x
