Come Fly With Me

Preferably somewhere warm 'cos it's flippin freezing here... not so much in the way of snow, but it's just SOOOOO cold. My Artistic Outpost stamps have been feeling a bit neglected lately so out they came for a play. I'm having to bring everything into the living room/lounge/sitting room (I've just read a thread on this and it turns out I'm Northern and working class - who knew lol) in from the conservatory 'cos it's too cold for Captain Birdseye in there!
I've used stamps from the Charles and Amelia plate for the background, and also from London Underground to make the newspaper background. Fly has been covered with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain, then sanded and inked in DI.
I'm entering this into the 
Artistic Outpost January referral - anything goes 
Frilly and Funky  Follow Your Muse - mine always leads me to my stamps and inks
Fashionable Stamping Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

In my Living Room I have a 3 piece, and sit on a settee (which my son calls a sofa :-) We eat breakfast, dinner and tea and I drink coffee from a mug. What would Hyacinth Bucket say lol x
