ATCs

I know, don't faint! I have done some ATCs! Now some of you may or may not know (or even care) but ATCs are what got me into papercrafting. I was reading a magazine and there was an article about them with a website address....and the rest is history! I moved from ATCs to Inchies and then after a long while I took the even bigger step to Scrapbooking! Now I probably have not done an ATC for a couple of years. UKStampers was where I did a lot of ATC swapping and after a short break their swap has re-started with the theme Shades of Blue. As I am on my hols still, I thought I would join in and who knows....maybe I will be able to do some each month now. So a quick BG using spritzed Distress Inks then stamped over with a flower stamp and spritzed with a blue glimmer mist.
I cut out the fabric flowers from some scraps I discovered kicking about and then stitched beads in for the middles. Finally I added the dymo tape strips.
I really enjoyed doing these so let's hope I can keep up with the swaps. I am anticipating that now all the children will be at the same school and my hours have changed slightly life might provide me with a little more free time!

hello, chicken licken (sorry couldn't find your name anywhere!)

I was googling ATCs as I am new to the artform and wanted to find some people to swap with. I came across your blog via tandastamps and your artwork is so beautiful and whimsical, you are very talented.

My ATCs are mainly watercolour images but if you are would be at all interested in swapping one then I would feel very privaledged to recieve one of yours!

You can find images on my blog http://www.samantha-webb-atc.blogspot.com/ of available swaps and other swaps that I am taking part in.

I look forward to hearing from you, Samantha x
