January's ATC Swap

The ATC swap that I joined in with last year has started up again and January's theme was Anything Goes. I chose to use the sentiments from Pink Petticoat and teamed them with a punched butterfly.

I inked all the edges with distress inks and added some gold stickles applied with a brush to the edges of the ATC. I put 3 gold gems down the centre of each butterfly and dotted some pearls drops randomly around.

Aimee enjoyed making the ATC's for her homework so much last year that she wanted to join in with the swaps again this year here are her ones.

She made them all basically the same just changeing the background colour and the layout of the stars.

Distressing at Incy Wincy

It's Monday morning, back to school after the half term holidays here and time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy. This week we want to see some distressing on your projects, our fantastic sponsor this week is Aurora Wings .
I have used this cute image called Dragon Babies from our sponsor, coloured with promarkers.  I added a few dots with my blender pen to give the idea of scales and added crackle accents to the top edges and cracks in the eggs. The paper is from Fancy Pants Dapper Dan pad and I have distressed the edges of everything with my tim holtz paper distresser.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Things With Wings
Less Is More - Wings
Retro Sketches - Sketch ( hope it's ok that I spun the sketch round)

Tic Tac Toe at Incy Wincy

Time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy this week we are playing Tic Tac Toe here's the board for you to choose from

Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps I choose to use this fun shark which is called  Cartoon Smiling Shark  by Ken Benner who is one of the many artists you will find in their shop. I coloured the image with my promarkers and used my circle nesties to cut it out. I added some clear dew drops to the bubbles above the shark.

From the bingo board I choose to use brads/twine/punch. I punched a tag for the sentiment which I stamped in white ink and attached to the twine using a brad. The background has been embossed with Spellbinders So Trendy embossing folder and then I swiped the white ink pad over it,
