More atc's

Another post with atc....getting quite into these now....
will have to buy some blanks as I've been cutting
them myself and it's quite difficult to get them all the same
corosponding size....
the stamp set is a small that is made especially for making
atc' was stamped onto the card with memento ink.....I then
sponged on various shades of tim holts distressing ink...tumbled glass...
scattered straw....peeled paint.....dusty concord...the pearl is from
my stash....thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment.....


This is my fist time making atc's....told
my friend I would never make them because
they are too fiddly....they are brilliant to make...
can try out different techniques
the stamp set I used is from woodware...
the background was stamped
with the stamp set ...the stamp set was cut out and coloured
in with copics....and background was sponged with
tim holts distressing ink straw.....
this atc was made the same way as the one above....

1 card 2 challenges

over on the corrosive challenge blog this week
they are asking for a faux technique...I have chosen
faux stitching....also on the scrappy frogs
challenge this week they are asking you to incorporate
faux stitching.....
this is the card I came up with for the 2 challenges...
the faux stitching is produced using the mat pack from
stampin up.....the papers are also
from stampin up(sorry don't know what they are called)...
the card is bazzill.....
the owl stamp is a new design from
owls at the's stamped onto a nesties...
label 4...and the image is coloured in with a mixture
of promarkers and copics.....have always used promarkers in the past...
because thought copics too expensive to buy...but not much
different in price about 20p...the advantage of copics is that
they have a finner nip against promarkers...I then placed
the nestie back over the image and sponged on brushed
corduroy using a the affect is makes...I made the card into an easel..
they sentiment was stamped onto a fancy tag by nesties...
thanks for looking ....feel free to leave a comment...
