Happy Little Stampers - November ATC Challenge

This month's ATC challenge at Happy Little Stampers has a theme that I absolutely love - WORDS.

I have so many quote stamps - they just seem to keep jumping into my shopping basket, don't know how! The only difficult thing for me then was deciding which ones to use, although the scaled down size of ATCs did also influence my decisions.

For each ATC I started by stamping and heat embossing the word quotes and then went to work with some background stamping and ink blending.

I finished off each card with a brush of black soot round the edges - I really like the definition this gives to an ATC.

Stamps: Visible Image, Scars, Life Can Be Tough, Take Chances; HLS, Mixed Media Fun, Rainy Days
Inks: Versamark, clear; Ranger Superfine embossing powder, black; SU, smoky slate; Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry, twisted citron, peacock feathers, candied apple, black soot

Remember to pop on over to the HLS blog to soak up all the wonderful inspiration from the res tof the DT and then go search out those words and join in the fun.

As you read this post I should be just about settled in and looking forward to a weekend of crafting in Manchester at The HLS Retreat. Kylie has done an amazing job organising this from Australia and I'm so excited to be going and meeting her and loads of other craft blog friends for the first time.

Thanks for looking today and remember to keep crafting!
