Sunday Stampers - Bits and Pieces

Hels has a weekly challenge called Sunday Stampers with a different theme each week.  As the name suggests there has to be some stamping in whatever you do, even if it's just a little bit :)  The theme this week is 'Bits And Pieces'.  If you pop over you'll see Hels uses songs to inspire the themes - I only remember this song 'cos my older sister used to sing it - honestly ROFL.  This week anything goes really.  I've used a mini canvas - cheapo from 'The Works'.  I've used Perfect Pearls on the background and stamped a couple of flourishes, though they're mostly hidden now.  I ran a piece of metal through my SIzzix using a Cuttlebug folder and coloured it with alcohol inks then rubbed it down slightly with sandpaper, I used my MS doily punch along the edge.  I also used the metal to make a couple of leaves also coloured with alcohol inks.  I had made a Grungepaper flower but it didn't go (if I'd made a rose I think it would've), so just pleated a piece of card I'd previously punched with a MS punch and attached it with a large designer brad from We R Memory Keepers.  The studs on the left were intended for use on fabric and I've had them for years and years.  I made a little figure using wire and wrapped with wool (the arms look as though they are coming out of the midriff hehe), the face is made using air-drying clay and a mould, the wings are German Scrap from Scrapz which were red but coloured with alcoohol inks.  I ripped the saying into 3 as it didn't look right on this piece as it was.
