Waltzingmouse sketch Sketch challenge WMSC32 Waltzingmouse.... Not really sure how I was going to make this work.

Challenge at Catch The Bug - Bugaboo is to make an ATC card... Well that was right up my alley and since I had to start on my March/April ATC's for my group I belong to over in Montana what a perfect time to get two things done. The theme for my ATC group was sewing so this is the Bugaboo image I used for the card. I sew and made cloths, quilts and household items but cards I have only done a few. I decided to leave the threads on the front vs. taking them to the back just to give it an extra sewing look.

Wish I had insurance on them as I did my two legged kids LOL Well I'm finally getting around to my card for Bugaboo challenge...theme Winter white..I was not sure what I wanted to do and I wanted to keep it as white as I could but really needed some color on the cute little girl so just gave face and hair and heart the copics touch and light glitter for the rest of the image.

Stamping 411 SSC187 sketch One card TWO challenges....Stamping 411 SSC187 sketch... Stampin' Royalty theme Anything with wings... I have been wanting to use this punch again and this was the perfect chance. I first did the birds in a real pretty lime green and close up was stunning but far away you did not even see the birds so after some thinking I did them in black (dh's suggestion) and took white ink to sponge give it some depth..I was finally pleased. I did texture embossing place on the wings only also DH's idea using the paisley folder and just putting the wing in one of those paisleys. Looks good gee he better not even think of getting in my stash of supplies and start craftin.. ; )

Unscripted Sketches #90 One card TWO challenges... Sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches #90...and Paper Pretties PW 137 Paper Piecing.... Gee could I have chosen a harder image to paper piece? the pieces are quite small but it was done and I am pleased. I had a hard time finding words to use, it this image does come with a couple of words but it just did not fit what I wanted the card to say so remembered I just got the ladybug girl from MFT and so used the words from that set. It worked for what I wanted trying to keep with the Valentine / love theme.

Sunday Janurary 9, 2011

I belong to an ATC club over in Montana and because I live in WA state I make two months in advance and ship them off. I thought they all came out so cute for January/February. The flower one is to be bubble wrap well I made the design on the tan looking paper by taking a white sheet of paper and some bubble wrap and I stamped the bubble wrap in blue ink onto the paper then got a different piece of BW and stamped it in honey colored ink, then rubbed pearl x powder all over the sheet of paper, it kind of gave it an iridescent color but still wasn't right so took the spritz angel sprays and did marshmallow, gold. I was really pleased the way it came out then cut to size. Then the flower I die cut out the middle layer of the flower out of BW and took alcohol inks in blues and purple and colored them and layered it with the blue card stock (which I sprayed in delphinium spritz) I was really pleased with how all the cards came out. Rest are pretty much self explanitory. There are only 6 of us in the club so it's nice I did not have to make tons of them.
