Recent ATC'S

Uploading quite a few recent dabblings as I wont get much chance for a while! I've developed diabetes apparantly so they wont let me go overdue. Seeing consultant tomorrow so should get a date for Molly Moo to make an appearance, hopefully she'll come before they start interfering!

Anyways I shall start with some recent ATC's I've made for various swaps and things.
This one is Baking Tilda Blue and is coloured using ranger distress inks. I'm getting the hang of the skin tones now with many thanks to Marlene's blog!

Next up is Daydreaming Tilda (the stamp is Tilda waiting) again coloured with distress inks. The wording is done with scrapito foil and the background is alcohol inks.

Thought I'd squeeze one more swap in before Molly got here so these are for the Africa swap on Do Crafts. First one is a lovely stamp given to me by Shamela when we met in Cape Town. Its stamped on moonglow shadow ink that I swiped lightly with gesso so you get some tone & highlight. I then added more tones with distress ink. The background is made with moonglow starburst stains and the stamp is by Judikins. The African lady also had highlighs on her armband and crown using scrapito foil.

This was made using Dee Gruenig's blending blox in shades of orange. Same Judikins stamp (its one of theose cube ones) I added glimmer to the water with sakura stardust in clear and the lion I bought in Cape Town a couple of years ago.

Same as above, letting is chipboard (Z) and peel offs I painted with white acrylic and made the stripes with sakura glaze in black.

Last up is Gracious Pink. I had lots of enquiries for swaps over a couple of cards i posted on Do Crafts a while ago as people thought they were ATC's so now I'm getting round to doing an ATC version! The pink is moonglow starburst stains and the stamp is Da Vinci cosmos collage stamped on the background then partially on a 1x1" piece of stampbord, coloured with adirondack ink and highlights scraped away.

Third try. Blogger is not liking me today.

Lovely ATCs. My fav is the last one.

You beat my date by a big margin. Even though gestational diabetes is quite common, you should watch your diet. Hopefully Molly will decide to come out before the docs interfere.

Tell her ;-)
