Some ATCs for a change!


I don't make many ATCs these days but when I saw
from Penny in Maine, USA I had to join in!

Penny (of A Penny for your thoughts blog) invited participants
to make five ATCs and send them to her so she can make them
into little concertina books and send back out to the participants so
we can own a little bit of artwork from each other.

All my ATCs had Distress Ink backgrounds - you know, the method where
you swipe the pad across the craft sheet, mist with a little water
and glide your card across - great fun and you never know
what the results will be!

All the images used were rubber stamped Stampotique ones onto
card and stuck onto the ATCs.


Various bits of embellishment were added
and some more rubber stamping directly onto the ATCs.


Can't wait to see what ATCs I get back.
Penny told me she's already started work on the concertina books
 and has had big sheets of tea dyed watercolour paper drying
 in her back yard -
  I wonder what the neighbours thought - LOL.

These are super ATCs. Your inked backgrounds are perfect for the stamped images. I am sorry I didn't participate in Penny's concertina book offer. Happy Haunting...
