Hello!  I'm still here - just very quiet. But today, I finished a bit of a silly card I've had in my head since I saw the Allsorts theme this week - and it just so happens that Simon Says Monday have chosen a similar theme, so I thought I'd make it...😊

I don't use transport images often - but then I had a thought about one of the stamp sets I have, which is really for using with the crazy animals. There's a scooter stamp... and my first thought was to team it up with 'Les Rats des Villes'. 

The background is very simple, sponged oxides with a bit of water splattering and some cloudy stencilling for the sky. I actually took the word stamp off the mount just to use it here, because it's one of those that's never stamped straight and that stopped me using it 😉

So, I'm playing along with:

Allsorts - Transport

Simon Says Monday - Transport it

Watercooler Wednesday - Masculine ATG

Addicted to Stamps - for a man, boy

Thank you for calling in today

I'll be back soon

What a fun take on transport Cath. Those rats are pretty funny. Someone is really clever to come up with those stamps. And you made a super card with them too. And that quote works well too. Boy that is an oldie. I have it also. (But a goodie for sure.) Hugs-Erika

I love this. To say rats make me shudder is an understatement but these I like. Do you mean to say that you have masked the two images to make them appear on the scooters? What fantastic work - I know you like masking but this is so good. It has blown me away.
Hugs, Neet xx
