Getting messy again.
Anyway....I digress. I HAVE managed to finish my sister's wedding album so I might take some pics of that later. I have also been getting on with Postcrossing. Remember I told you about the site where you get random postcards from all over the world. Well one lady sent me one from Finland and said that one of her hobbies was ATCs. Soooo we arranged a swap and these are the two I made for her. I did them at the same time as the November ATC swap on UKStampers too. I am just too organised! I did all the backgrounds the same; beige mountboard painted with white, ochre and sienna paint. Then a blast of cosmic shimmer. These two I then overstamped with a postcard stamp and some other postal bits. I triple embossed the frame/swirl with pewter powder and then popped it all on with some vintage images.
So back to November..I already explained the BG bit; for these I decided to collect random, linked stamps and put them all over the BG, masking as I went.
