Tuesday Talk

I think I mentioned the other day - HERE - that I'm completely besotted by creating and swapping atc cards at the moment. Well today I thought I'd share some of my February atcs I've made and sent off across the world.

These two use the most incredibly gorgeous girl from Bugaboo digi stamps and some of my favourite purples. The hearts were coated with glossy accents to give dimension and i added tiny gems to the hair strands.

Then my new Visible Image goodies arrived and I was in inky heaven! And look I even broke out from usual colour choices!

These three used up a piece of background card I'd made ages ago using a brayer, a gelly plate and ColorBox ink pads with a liberal sprinkling of watered brusho crystals on top. The images were stamped and heat embossed and a Tim Holtz idea-ology Small Talk sticker added.

The images on the next two were stamped on top of a script stamped piec of card then heat embossed and hand cut. The background was a left over water coloured brusho mix with some distress oxide stencilling on top. The words were stamped and heat embossed.

My final trio of atcs using the fabulous images from Visible Image are a real mix of supplies. the butterflies were stamped, heat embossed and handcut and popped up on foam pads. The background started with a piece of designer paper that I pounced Versamark ink on very gently and heat embossed with black powder.

Then I repeated this pouncing but used Ranger sticky embossing powder and added gold deco foil. This was the beginning of my journey and love of this sticky embossing powder and I can't stop using it now!

And to finish up this February share two more CAS looking cards.

The first card was made for the February Monthly ATC Swap in the fb group Happy ATC. The theme was Spring and I always think Spring has begun when the sun shines and the frogs arrive in my garden pond. The image is from the now closed down Digi Stamp Boutique, but I still love their digis and will continue to use them.

And this card was made for the Happy ATC fb group's February lottery. The theme was LOVE and I used Uniko goodies.

 I hugely grateful if you've read down this far on my post. Thanks so much for your visit.

And keep crafting!
