Morning and welcome to Saturday!

Morning all,

Saturdays are big challenge days - with the sketchie and the LIM challenge too ... but, before we get on to that, it's back to the collage work and I have completed the second collage ATC of three - hope you like this one too, I shall look forward to your comments as this particular area of crafting is completely new to me.
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Gesso (I used clear)
  • Ranger acrylic paints in Eggplant, pearl, peach bellini and copper
  • Sequin waste
  • Ranger spreader
  • Tops from various household products
  • Crafty Individuals image and sentiment, inked in memento tuxedo black on to white card and paper pieced too
  • Check paper used as paper piecing, border and to cut the hat.
  • SU .6mm black marker for doodling and border
  • Copics and Marvy alcohol markers to colour image
In the meantime .... over on the Simply Less Is More blog the challenge is: CIRCLES and specifies that this must mean more than one ...... so no cheating by making a circular card!!!

And over on the craftbubble group Craft Mad and Loving It the sketch is absent this week. Apparently, it's CMLI's first birthday and so this week is a competition instead .... to design a birthday card. There's a prize too - so get crafting! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO CRAFT MAD AND LOVING IT!!!

Have a SUPER DUPER Saturday however you end up spending it

Hi Kathy, Isn't it great to branch out and do new stuff? I love your ATC it's loads of fun and that little baby is so cute, relevant text too, great colours. :0) Gay xxx

Oh yes Kathy - just divine. The additions to your background are well balanced and very visually appealing. I love the stamped image and the sentiment to go with it and the doodling really adds that extra special touch. Great job.
Have a great Saturday - it is pouring down here so I am not going far from the craft room.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
