June 2008 Graphicus Guild ATC swap



Hello to anyone who has been kind enough to have a look at my blog. I really do not have a clue what I'm doing so it's all trial and error. Just to see 'if I can' I'm hoping to show you a photo of a couple of ATCs I submitted to the Graphicus Guild June swap.


Wow I've managed to get the photo alongside the wording so I've done something right.


Just as a reminder for myself really, I brayered the backgrounds of both ATCs using a Big and Juicy Gum Drop inkpad onto glossy card. The one on the left is using Elusive Images 'All of a Twitter' themeplate and coffee bean Brilliance ink then coloured in with Sakura Stardust pens . The wording is stamped onto a piece of torn velum and attached with brads and finally one of the birds stamped onto shrink plastic. The one on the right is using the Elusive Images 'Wild Meadow' themeplate and a selection of Brilliance ink pads with the final pale blue layer embossed with clear powder. The final touch is a Creative Expressions butterfly stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured with chalks.

Congratulations on the blog - welcome to blogland! The ATCs look lovely, but I'm bound to be biased, aren't I?

Great to see you blogging as I wanted to return the compliment after you visited my blog. I see that we are almost neighbours as well as being like-minded! I love your ATCs. I'd be well pleased if I was on the other end of your swap! Maybe I should think about joining in the GG swap. Please post some more of your creations soon as I love to see what other people are doing with Glenda's lovely stamps...well, any stamps really!
Good luck with the blog.
