I was feeling a bit sorry for myself yesterday evening following a trip to my dentist for the first half of my root canal treatment, so i gave blogging a miss......which means that i have a couple of things to share with you today :)
The first, is an ATC for the challenge this week at Arty Girlz. I'm sure you are aware that an ATC or Artist Trading Card is 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches and must be given away, or traded but never sold.
I haven't made very many of these in the past, but they are growing on me a bit......i do cheat though and use a standard size playing card as they are the correct size, just cover with paper or card and away you go!
For my design today, i covered my playing card with black Bazzill cardstock, i then made a background for my image with white glossy card and Alcohol Inks in Cranberry & Espresso.
Tip :- whilst i have all my supplies to hand i make several of these 'backgrounds' in different colours and then i have them to use at a later date.
The image was stamped with black Stazon and is from 'Chapel Road' unfortunately it has no title! The gems are Kanban, the portion of flower in the corner is Making Memories and i've also added some doodling with my Inkssentials pen.
My second project that i have is for the challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar, my first time with them :) "Love is in the Air...... to make a card or gift for someone special ..............so this is a card for my husband for Valentines Day :)I've used some fabulous paper from Basic Grey's 'Scarlets Letter' collection, along with a portion of Bazill 'Just the Edge' die cut paper. The polka dot heart stamp is a Pink Paislee acrylic and the love swirl is Autumn Leaves. The black U is an AC Thicker(love these!) and i have a ton of ribbon which i keep in large empty Yankee Candle jars.......so i have no idea who's it is...Sorry!
****If you would like to have the ATC shown here, then leave me a comment on this post and i will draw a winner from the names i have on Monday 2/2/09 at 8pm GMT****
Thanks for popping in today...... :-D
