Sharing again

As I promised, I am back to share some ATC's that I have made in the last couple months. I was asked to join a club and here are my 1st 2 creations. Fairy Lucky was of course for March. The theme a fairy or a leprechaun, so I found this picture in one of my Dover Books. I then used some paint for background. Stamped with Tim Holtz new Visual Artistry stamps from Michael's. Then I sprayed with a little glimmer mist. Machine stitched a rainbow. Put the little guy down, there ya have it. Oh, and a bit of spatter on the card also.
This is love is in the air. That was the theme for February. So a hot air balloon heart is what came to my mind. So this one started with Ellie poo paper. Yep paper made out of elephant poop. I stamped the poo with a music background using Tim Holtz distress ink. Inked the edges, roughed up edges. Using heavy mulberry paper I wet it, and ripped my heart out. (oh that sounds so sad) The basket is just a punched circle, folded at the top to make basket. Add a few lines and you have a basket. I did add some metal wings to help the balloon take flight. Typed out the "love is in the air" glued and stapled it on did some stitching on the basket and I was done. Lot of work but I like the way it turned out.

Last, here is the card I promised. I am not a big card maker. But when I need cards I know who and where to go. Tami comes up with all different types of cards and has ideas galore. So the other night I decided to go hang out with her. This is one of the cards we made. I love it. Basic Grey paper that is awesome. Tami does such a nice job at cards. She loves details. We had a lot of fun, we made 4 cards and she gave us some extra goodies. We worked at a store names Smudges, and Leslie from the store also gave us a card kit to work on at home. How nice was that. So thanks Tami for the great tips and tricks and treats.

Hum...... what will Saturday bring? I think I will share the front of a journal that I did the other night. So stay tuned. I told you once I started you would not be able to get rid of me!
