Welcome to WOYWW

Morning all,

We're half way through yet another week, pretty soon June will be gone and we'll be in to July, that's over half the year .... soon be Christmas then!

Some of you may recall that I swap themed ATC's with a buddy on the Isle of Skye .. now I had an idea yesterday which involved one of the year's themes and I set off to make the ATC ... little did I realise that it was actually the NOVEMBER challenge of ... HATS!! Oh well, one less to make, I guess!

My HAT themed ATC
Work in progress!
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of chocolate brown linen textured card cut to ATC size
  • Snippet of white card - for my image panel and hats!
  • Stampers Anonymous hats stamped on to one snippet using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Stampers Anonymous mini dogs stamped on to white snippet (cut ½cm smaller than the ATC/brown textured panel) and also on to post it material - which I then used as a mask on the central doggy
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils to colour the hats, dogs and background.
  • I fussy cut out the hats and attached to the most appropriate (IMHO) doggy
  • Plaid dimensional gloss applied to the dog noses, dog tags and the tongue of the right hand doggy!, to add texture and interest

Fabulous post,
Sorry for the delay in commenting, laptop trouble. It's died on me and I'm in a bit of a flap.
On a positive note, my Dear Husband plans to buy a replacement for me.
