Alphabet ATC Swap - O for Oval


I found this month's letter a challenge and spent quite some time trying to find 3 words I could use. My first word is oval. I used some texture paste through a stencil onto a diecut oval and matted it onto a scalloped oval. The profile is a Tim Holtz stamp and I added an ornate corner stamp.

Wordgirl - Before and After


I was looking at the card in my previous post (see above) and felt it looked a bit too plain. I decided it needed some extra embellishment so I added some diecut stars, sequins and gave her some ombré wings:

My First Wordgirl Stamp!


First and probably not my last LOL. I really enjoyed colouring this gorgeous image with marker pens and pencils. This stamp is designed by Trish Latimer and available for sale in her Etsy shop here. I decided to make a quick CAS card by adding some washi tape.

Alphabet ATC Swap - I for Iris


My final ATC this month is an old favourite Hero Arts stamp coloured with marker pens. The background is made of various shades of blue DI with a crackle stamp.

Alphabet ATC Swap - I for India


My second ATC this month had to be I for India. I used twisted citron, picked raspberry, and ripe persimmon DIs on an ATC blank and then embossed it with a paisley folder. The detail was highlighted by brushing pumice stone DI over the raised areas. The 2 images are from a Judikins cube and the text is by Paper Artsy. A paisley brad embellished the ATC.

Monthly Challenge


This month's challenge on the Craft Barn blog is to add gillyflowers to our page. I had to check and see exactly what gillyflowers were and discovered they can be stocks or pinks. This is a very simple page as my shoulder makes anything more elaborate problematic. I've used a Hero Arts flower, coloured with picked raspberry DI. I have added apricot coloured raindrops(!) and the all important verse.

Alphabet ATC Swap - I for Invitation


This month's letter is I. I have made a very simple invitation embossed in gold and embellished with pearls. I made a small envelope for the invitation as well.
