On your bike ATC

I also managed to make an ATC for the Modes of Transport theme set by the Craft Stamper magazine this month. I finally caved in and took out a subscription as I seemed to drive 50 miles each month just to get my copy, a bit extreme and a pure waste of petrol. Not to mention all the other items I managed to buy while in the Borders Bookshop.

They are the only magazine in the U.K. running an ATC swap with a new theme every two months but of course this ATC needs to include stamping in some shape or other.

The background is one of my fabric/paper collages with a French taste to it. I used a lot of napkins in my collage which had cafes, bars and coffeeshops on them with French names. You can see one faintly in the background. There is also a fragment of an antique map of Paris on show. To this I added a fabric images from Alphastamps Paris showgirls #1 sheet (a tiny bit risque) . I stamped the bike image on a transparency using black Staz-On ink. No idea where this stamp came from. It's a clear one from a sheet dedicated to travel. This was stitched on, partly covering the showgirl to spare her blushes. The text was actually the first thing I thought of when I found out the Modes of Transport theme. It was famously uttered by one of our politicians (Norman Tebbit) to tell people to get on with finding jobs.
