I have been part of an ATC group since 2005. It's been a lot of fun and I have 5 volumes of amazing ATC art to look through when I'm low on inspiration. Unfortunately the enthusiasm for taking part has dwindled and so we have decided to end in December. This is my submission for the penultimate swap with a theme of leaves. The stamp used on the red ATC is by Katzelkraft and the fern on the green ATC is by Hero Arts. The word 'leaves' is a Simple Expressions stamp and is covered by a leaf cut from acetate & coloured with alcohol inks. In 6 years I don't think I missed a single month and I will miss taking part but there have been so many changes over the years in the crafting world and there are so many other swaps and challenges out there that I'm sure it won't be long before I find a new home.

The prompt was blue & crackle. I used a Hampton Arts crackle stamp on a BG of distress inks & a homemade spritz. The die-cuts are by Marianne & Nellie & I have coloured a clear button with alcohol inks. The corner stamp is by Crafty Individuals & I have drawn in faux stitching on the calendar.
