Flower with Chalks ATC

I made this ATC using a Versamark Ink Pad by Tsukineko and coloured it by dabbing on chalks. I added a layer of green paper topped with a floral image and a cut out flower all highlighted with craft chalks. The ribbon was a present from a crafty friend who included it with a swap she sent me recently. I am really pleased with this ATC but it hasn't photographed very well.

Chalks (again)

Well, you've probably realised by now that I have been playing with my chalks today. The stamps are by Hero Arts (again).

Chalky Flowers

This card is made from more Hero Arts stamps. I used chalks and added an extra stamped flower cut out an attached with a brad.

Hero Arts Flower

I have had this flower stamp for years now and I often go back to using it. I prefer the 'less is more' approach to card making and this stamp is perfect in my eyes. The gems are by the Do Crafts brand Papermania.

January Tag

I take part in a Month of the Year tag swap through a craft group on line. This is my interpretation of January!

My Published ATCs

These ATCs are 2 of the 4 I had published in a recent edition of Do Crafts Scrapbooking Magazine. The bottom one was shown in its entirety except Do Crafts changed its layout to make it portrait!

I am involved in ATC swaps through Do Crafts and I was asked to submit some for a magazine feature. I thought I wouldn't hear any more and then in November the mag dropped through my door with my ATCs in!

The others featured can be found here.

Alcohol Inks

This card is made with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks on acetate. I am really pleased with the effect. I used the 3 colours from the Cottage Path collection.
