Oh My Goodness, I just can't stop myself making ATC's ..... I've another for you today .

Showing the edges "rolled in fairy dust!"
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in white and pink (created using red watercolour wash and then Paper Artsy splatter, from HPXT01, stamped using Memento rhubarb stalk)
  • Katzelkraft rat (from KTZ179) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink

  • Woodware sentiment (the snarky bit!) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Swiping Versamark ink around the outer edge, sprinkled with WOW! embossing powder (lilac shimmer), the excess shaken off and then heat embossed .. as the "fairy dust"
  • Paper Artsy splatter (HPXT01) stamped using versamark ink and the same embossing powder
  • Once I'd "finished" the ATC I looked at it a while and figured it needed just a little something so ... headed to the computer and ran up the "I DARE YOU" sentiment using Mackintosh font which I then printed on my laser printer and coloured with the same two alcohol markers and edged with the grape jelly ink .... NOW it's finished!

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Penny's Paper Crafty - challenge No. 338 - ANYTHING GOES

Two great ATC's Kathy and that bull terrier reminds me of the one in Oliver, I think it was called Bullseye, another cute rat as well. x

That dog is one BAD BOY isn't he?

I simply cracked up at the rat with that sentiment! Hilarious.

Happy Friday.
