Card For Folded ATC

This is the first art I have done since Sunday so thought I would share, as little as it is. Seems my creative muse just wasn't up to it.

The Folded ATC that I posted earlier is for a Lottery on one of my groups so thought I would do a card to hold it when I mail it off. So I played with the same papers, added a couple of different embellishes by way of a Fiskars border punch along with my deckle edge scissors, and I used a different butterfly stamp. Back to the art room and see if my muse is still there or MIA again.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Was just taking some me time in my studio with nothing planned other than I challenged myself to use this old photo image which was generously posted by Cora at The wings and bird are images from Lisa's Altered Arts Babies with wings riding birds is still outside my comfort zone but I'm trying to stretch myself.

Folded ATC

This is an ATC done for one of my groups where the challenge was to do a folded ATC. So I came up with this idea as a change from some of the more typical folds. The piece of waxed linen tied is what holds the folded section down. The flourish stamps and the quote stamp can be found at along with waxed linen string (although I'm not sure if Suzanne is carrying the light blue). To stamp the first part of the quote I inked only that part of the stamp and using a stamp positioner managed to get it pretty much lined up on the lines. Then I inked only the last part to stamp on the right lower corner. Not sure who makes the little caterpillar stamp but the large butterfly is from PSX some years ago now. I created my own double sided paper by gluing two pieces of scrapbook paper together so this made it heavy enough for the ATC. Not sure just double sided paper alone would be heavy enough for ATCs.

This is a card done for another yahoo group monthly card lottery and the theme for the month of August is anything Asian. I love playing with my coloured pencil crayons.

World Travel

Have been home from vacation for a week now and today is my first day making art. This ATC is done for a TGIF Travel themed swap on one of my yahoo groups

Just thought I'd Share

Just thought I would share the news about my costume from the previous post. After all my fussing with getthing it made I guess it turned out better than I thought it had. I placed first in the Ladies Day Wear catagory of our Cowboy Action Shooting Promenade. Also placed 5th for shooting in my catagory as well. Hopefully I'll have better times and less misses in the next one. Off to create paper art now.
