Take a Ride!

Through my friend Paula, (who is an awesome card maker and scrapbooker, and vintage lover like me!!) I discovered the blog of the Wednesday Stampers. Every Wednesday they have a challenge going on, and you have to use at least one stamp!
Well, as you probably know by now, I'm getting kind of addicted to "collecting" stamps, so the use of one isn't that hard anymore, ha, ha.

(if you want to see it larger, click on the picture!)
This weeks theme is "Take a Ride" and eventhough I have a bicycle stamp, the vintage lover in me took over and I used this lovely Tim Holtz stamp of the "umbrella man" and the "clock" from the set "Lifes Possibilities". If you've got some imagination (kind of like I used here), and look at the title, I figured the man could travel through time using his umbrella... And I liked the idea, so I used it!
For the first time I've worked on a 4x4 and gosh, that's just great! The Harlequin stamp is by Crafty Individuals, inks used are Stazon Midnight Blue, Distress Shabby Shutters and Vintage Photo, and to brighten things up a bit, I used my Hotfix to put some bling on the Harlequin's!

Mooie 4x4 ! hele gave kleuren heb je gebruikt :)

Ik heet trouwens ook Marjolijn (met een ij dus) en ik ben in juni 2006 naar Noorwegen verhuisd, wat toevallig !!

Helemaal super Marjo!!! En een orginele manier om zo het thema te verwerken! Die fiets lag natuurlijk meer voor de hand, maar dit vind ik echt creatief bedacht!
