ATC's as promised :)

Hi all,

Well since I've been feeling a bit down & mojoless this week I thought I would post some ATC's that I have started doing. These three I've made since Hero Arts had them as a challenge two weeks ago. I really like making them & can see why people are so addicted to them. I would also like to give a Huge thankyou to my wonderful friend Arlene for sending me the info on what you put on the backs of these ATCs. Arlene's blog is here & her flickrstream is here so if you get a chance you should check out some of her ATCs.

Hero Art Owl is from Lucy who was kind enough to stamp up some images & send them to me earlier this year. I have wanted to do something with this cute little guy ever since I got him :). I kept this one fairly simple by just adding a scrap of Basic Grey paper from the porcelain series onto Black Cardstock.

Celebrate Owl is actually from a free digi kit called Indie Pops on the Two Peas website. All I did was to cut the image down to fit. I then added Kindy Glitz & Diamond Glaze for a little sparkle.

Butterfly Screen is basically a test ATC. I tried out a few new techniques for me. I did the emboss resist & then used my distress inks on a craft mat & added water to smooch the ATC in. I also experimented with my new alcohol inks on the flowers.

Well thank you for popping in & your wonderful comments. Have a great week ahead & TTFN

These are really sweet Paula! My Mojo has been on the blink a bit over the last few days. Hopefully this is just a temporary situation - perhaps I need to try some ATC's too? I had to spend today studying which felt a big fat waste of some good card making time!!! Hugs to you and yours, Jo x

Paula - they are very good. Love the little owl and how you skewered the layer, very effective. Love the butterfly background. I did the same thing with one of my bookmarks. It is a a great technique (even if I did have to go back to Jennifers videos to check on how to do it!) ATC's are a great thing to do when the Mojo is gone - and good to try new techniques. BTW aren't Arlene's ATC's just amazing!!!
