It's Not Terry's, It's Mine!
My very dear friend, Terry, has bought me the most fabulous present for my 50th birthday! It's the Newsboy plate by Artistic Outpost and it arrived yesterday from the Funkie Junkie Boutique in the USA. She is so, so kind and I have inked it up already for this very quick make, which is a gift for her. I stamped the buildings in the background in different Sepia and Brown and Black tones, and then popped the Newsboy in the foreground. I stamped the word Extra! directly on the pen which goes with the notebook - perfect for writing down those crafty thoughts! The blue on the Newsboy's jumper was meant to be very subtle but I think it has come out more Man at C and A than 1900s Ragamuffin!
I am linking this up to the Artistic Outpost Referral Programme for April.
There has been much joking back and forth between Terry and myself about this stamp plate since it came out as she has been teasing me and tempting me with the gorgeous artwork she and the other members of the Artistic Outpost DT such as my other friend, Alison, have been making and they did not have the plate at Happy Daze who I make items for so I couldn't get hold of it. Then she dropped me a line and said, 'I am getting it for you, for your birthday'. So now I can say, it's not Terry's, it's mine!*
Thank you so much, dear Terry, and watch this space for more projects, with the orphan Annie's .....
