Sunday Stamper 9/11

I have been very moved by a number of tributes that have been created in remembrance of 9/11 that I just had to join in. For me it became quite important to start and finish it actually on 9/11, not that this really matters.


There are some Tim Holtz stamps that fit the bill rather well but I had already seen these used for 9/11 so wanted to use something different. I trawled through my stamps and came up with these Paper Artsy stamps. However I used the Rays at the top to try and lighten the whole look and create a sense of heaven? We all wish our loved ones to be in a happier place than us.

I got out my heat tool, that is like a teeny tiny iron, and burnt all the edges. I added measuring tape ribbon to show 9/11 and even found a price tag in the Salvage stickers that said 9/11. I hung the numbers at the bottom by sandwiching paper clips on to the numbers and hanging from Tim Holtz studs. A few kisses at the top to hang by as well as a piece of charcoal to represent all the burning at the scene.

The main stamp at the bottom has a skyline in the background that looks like a tumbling city and the woman with the rays reminded me of the Statue of Liberty as well as someone's lost love.

Thank you Hel's and the Sunday Stamper for such a poignant challenge that is so so apt and so current and truly a Time to Remember.

WOW! this is very poignant. I have been quite amazed almost, at how affected I have felt this year, maybe it is all the tributes and documentaries that have been on.
Thanks for stopping by my blog too.
