More ATCs

Here are the latest ATCs that I created over the past couple of days.  The Who Dat card is for the Winner Takes All Swap that Wendy hosts.  She randomly draws a person once a month and that lucky person is the recipient of ATCs from all the other participants in whatever theme she chooses.  This month Celia wanted owls.  I hope she enjoys her little Who Dat.  The owl was cut our of really thin wood veneer.  I found the cute little owl on Kate's ABCs cartridge.  The background was created with several colors of distress ink and then topped off with Viva Decor's Pearl Pen in Blue.  This paint is very translucent and easy to use.  I smeared a thin layer on top of the distress inks.  I also used the White Pearl Pen to create the moon

Who Dat
Cinderella's Dream was created for the Monthly Swap over at Blissfull ATCs.  This month's theme was dress-forms.  Under all the fluff of the dress is a beautiful gold leaf dress-form.  I decided to dress my form.  The skirt itself is made from glimmer misted cupcake liners.  The top is a small piece of cotton lace that was the perfect fit.  I added a rhinestone necklace and sequin trim.  The background was created using Tim Holtz's crackle paint.  I then added pink colored pearls as a frame. and randomly placed pink iridescent sequins for a bit of sparkle.  When it was all finished, the dress reminded me of the dress the mice made for Cinderella in the Disney Movie. 

So it just seemed fitting that I would entitle my ATC Cinderella's Dream.  

I sure hope that my partners enjoy their cards!!!

Recent ATCs

Recently I have been participating in ATC swaps.  These little works of art are the perfect size for me to use my arm but not bring on hours of pain after the fact.  In the past couple of weeks I have participated in a Lace ATC swap over at The Altered Paper and the "it's a mad, mad Alice in wonderland world" over at Blissfull ATC swaps.

The swaps I am participating in for March over at Blissfull ATC Swaps are the Winner Takes All with an Owl Theme and the March Swap with a Dress-form Theme.  I am almost finished the with both and will post pictures over the weekend.
