Purple ATCs

The purple papers are sprayed using ink sprays. The butterfly was die cut from the paper then embossed with script, black ink to pick up the script then embossed again using a butterfly embossing folder and finished off with some treasure gold. The mulberry paper was embossed in a folder and then I used purple and gold treasure gold to pick up the texture.


A bit of a catch up of some ATCs I've made over recent months. This swap involves a guessing game where we see if we can spot who made which ATC and so I can't put the pictures up immediately. This means that I end up forgetting to post them at all so you can have them all at once in this post.

The theme was numbers. I used a teflon sheet and smeared some distress ink pads on and then sprayed with water before dipping the card into it. Dried then dipped again and again to get the final effect.

Theme was Impressionists. The background paper was made using three colours of acrylic paints picked up and dabbed on using some scrumpled up magazine page. The image was printed onto textured card to give the look of canvas.

Theme was Acetate. I die cut the butterfly from acetate then coloured using alcohol inks on one side and once embossed picked up the texture with black ink on the other side. Some beads attached the butterfly to the ATC and made the body, The background was made from several colours of acrylic paint. I used a stencil to dab on the purple border.

It girl gift notebook

The theme for this IT girl gift was children and so I made a holder for a small notebook that can be refilled when the notepad is finished.

Last meander page

This theme had me stumped for quite a while but in the end I decided to use a stamp I have that includes a song title.

Margaret's Angels

Margaret's theme for her IT girl was cemetery angels which I found quite difficult to tackle. I ended up with a collaged canvas piece.
