Scene Stamping at Gingersnaps

Hi, today at Gingersnaps the challenge is Scene Stamping and there are some great pieces by the DT to give you loads of inspiration.  This Journal Page I created for my DT piece sort of went a bit astray and will tell you why.

There were Two Parrots who wanted to travel to the Wild West but didn't have enough energy to fly the zillions of miles needed, so they hitched a ride, but somehow the Man in the Flying Machine got a bit lost and landed completely in the wrong place and who do you think they saw on landing, yep its the Umbrella Man, but because of the huge draft made by the Flying Machine it blew his umbrella away............Can you guess what these Parrots are saying......................?
Products used: Archival Ink, Watercolour Crayons, Whisper Pens, Tim Holtz Die Cut.
Stamps by: Scrolls Work, Cart-Us and Paper Artsy.

This one is about a Bird who doesn't know which way to go as he is a bit lost.
Products used: Distress Inks, Archival Ink, Glossy Cardstock and Corrugated Card.
Stamps by: ISC and TJ Designs.

I hope you will join in with the challenge as its great fun.  Don't forget its your Scene so put what you like in it.
Thank you so much for reading my rubbish and hope its made you smile.  Have a happy day and take care, hugs Annette x

Sherry Goodloe said...

The birds are saying "hey, have you ever seen umbrella man without his umbrella before? and the other bird replied, "no, but check out that cool red suit he's wearing today!"

You did a great job Netty :-)

Lucy Edmondson said...

I think one parrot is saying to the other, 'well, he doesn't look much like a cowboy to me. Are you sure you had the map the right way up?'

This is fab, Netty, I love your imagination, and the way you execute it into your art work. I would love to meet you and see if you are really mad!!

Gerri Herbst said...

Love all your birdie stories today! The first one is wonderful and so mysterious...I think the birds are saying. Looks like we'll have a lot of competition, now that man can fly! take care, gerri

Zoechaos said...

Not sure which I enjoyed more the story or the art! Love the idea of two birds hitching a lift LOL If Lucy is not right (Brilliant answer) then perhaps they are say 'He's a pretty boy then, He's a pretty boy then.....' XOXO Zoe

Candy C said...

Nettie ... you have quite the imagination with your parrot stories!!! So, what were the parrots saying to each other? I'm dying to hear how the story comes out! Your scene stamping is very neat. <3 Candy

Catherine... said...

Love these Netty...great fun...am sure that one Parrot is saying "Did you see that...that Red Man's umbrella flew away..." and the second Parrot is saying "Well I never...I didn't know umbrella's could fly...and I thought that the Red Man in America would look a little different....ummm"

Brenda Brown said...
