After binning 3 previous attempts at atc's I had 'another' idea. I know there are supposed to be no mistakes but these truly looked c**p! One of my friends on CraftBubble is setting up an ATC swop with the challenge of 'what inspires you'....after thinking long and hard..I decided my friends do!!
For some reason I decided to photograph all the stages of my journey... Hope you don't find it too boring!
I started off with a House Mouse sentiment
Added a Stampin Up 'Friend' text sentiment
I ran it through the cuttlebug to add some texture
Stamped and coloured (pm's) my new LOTV stamps and distressed with DI Tattered Rose
added some butterflies (fiskars punch) and done!
I did a second batch this time using Pollycraft Sentiment ' A friendship to treasure'
I used a floral embossing folder but it makes the text hard to read on a photo. Distressed with dried marigold DI and used a fiskars punch for the blooms. Gems from meiflower - clear coloured with pm's.
I will be entering these atc's into the following challenges;
Simon Says Stamp and Show - What do you say?
Make it Monday - Linky party
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything but a card
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Animal Crackers
One Stop Craft Challenge - Just Good Friends
Saturday challenge - Bright and Cheerful
