Some ATC's I have been working on for a background swap.
Firstly we did the same backgrounds for 9 ATC's. We then sent them in to have a background from each participant sent back which we then had to decorate.
This has been my first ATC swap and was a lot of fun, this art stuff is SO COOL!
I thought I would try something a little different, this bird cage is made out of florist wire and has a mixture of beads threaded on in parts and has some gold rub and buff in places. The german scrap on the edges was white and with a little play with the paints and some really cool colours like interference oxide green (such a cool name), ultramarine violet, cerulean blue all in the Golden Brand and metallic pure gold in the Folk Art brand it turned out great!
One of my favorites, and I just cant get enough of this Stampotique range of grungy and funky stamps. I just love them! I only have 2 in my stash but will be getting more for sure. See the little silver fly in the corner, he was stamped and then embossed, something I learnt in Kelsey's class at Scraptivate, so cool.
Have you seen the new Dark Room Door range of robot stamps and images. I made some cards for a card swap in a boy theme which I promise I will take a pic of and load up, these are so much fun to play with.
Earth Laughs in flowers, when I read this quote I new it would be perfect to use for this ATC.
There are more but I will load them up later, trying to clean my mess of the kitchen bench so we can actually eat there instead tip toeing around my art stash.
