Say it with flowers

ATC using chipboard shapes from Ginas Designs

Time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Bloggers Network and this month we are being sponsored by Mulberry Crafts who do some great paper flowers and embellishments at great prices.

This month’s challenge is Say it with Flowers and for my first project I decided to make an ATC. I made the background using Lace, glitter and double sided tape.

Celtic inspired ATC cards

Celtic Angel ATC

Celtic is the he theme for this months ATC swap in a group I belong to,  I thought I was going to have a bit of bother with that until I remembered this beautiful stamp I have had for some time. She is called Celtic Angel and she is from Crafts and Me. I resized her to ATC size (3.5 inches by 2.5 inches) and printed her onto some white card then coloured her with copics. I added some stickles to her wings and then edged the card with copics. I am rather pleased with the results.

ATCs with Attitude – Flowers

Elephant with Flowers artist trading card

This week over at ATCs and cards with Attitude I chose the cute elephant from our sponsor for my atc which I coloured with my copics and then cut out to place on this bacground paper that someone had sent me. I finished it off with a papermania flower, button and thread. The quote was printed on my PC.

Hands Off! ATC

Hands Off Tangled ATC

Here is an artist trading card that I created for a Zentangle group that I belong to, I decided to add a bit of colour to this one using my Copic Ciao pens. I traced the hands from a Zentangle book that I have and then drew stings to make the stripes.

Colourful Boofle

Here is the 3rd ATC by Grant for his swap. The image is a free stamp from the Docrafts magazine this month called Boofle which Grant decided to colour with the new paints I had bought him. The sticker came from Hobbycraft – its one of those scratch off ones that reveals the rainbow colours underneath the black. He then finished the whole thing off with some Papermania stars in the corners.
