It's ATC time at MAWTT

Good morning Thursday

What a rush this was - I really got myself in a muddle over the days, and it was only when I was scanning the newspaper late Wednesday that I realised I had to get something done for Moving Along with the Times .......  Well, I am putting it down to the fact that we have had a new mattress for our bedstead, and it is so comfortable I could wallow in it all day!

At MAWTT we would like you to make ATC's this week.  When I got round to it I found it really difficult - sizing up what stamps would go into the 2.5 x 3.5" size, and getting it to look right.  This was my third attempt using different colours for the base and the stamping medium.    Anyway, this is what I have made.

I coloured a piece of card with distress inks in Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade and Crushed Olive.  The image and sentiment are from the Stempelglede Vintage Christmas sheet, and stamped in Versafine Black Oynx.  Interresting how it takes on these brown tones when photographed.  I have added some red/orange gems and a piece of ribbon in the same tones.

This week we are sponsored by  

I am entering this for the following challenges:

ABC Christmas - U is for unused stash - bought last year and never inked!
Flutterby Wednesday - must include an angel, butterfly or fairy and use scraps - my piece of card was a scrap as was the ribbon
Crafty Cardmakers - Anything goes
Make it Monday - Always Anything goes
ATC Challenge - Anything girlie or anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - Distressing
