Another weekend is almost upon us ...

Morning all,

For those of you working, I guess the weekend starts later today and I'm hoping you all have something nice to look forward to this weekend.

Me? I'm planning on heading to Newbury to the Papercraft show at the racecourse, I'll be meeting friends. Hubby, who would rather stick pins in his eyes than attend a craft show, will be staying at home. If' I'm lucky I might persuade him to hang out the washing but other than that .... I don't THINK he'll be making my entry for the LIM challenge - sorry peeps, that will have to wait until Sunday!

In the meantime, I've yet another ATC to share with you, this time I can blame Lilian, she made a nice ATC recently, deploying an image of an antique gramaphone. Now I USED to have a similar image but fear I disposed of it at some point as I'm unable to track it down which is rare ... it WAS wood mounted so it IS possible I either sold it or gave it away! Anyhoo, I found a Kaisercraft image which seemed to work for me so ..... one vintage ATC

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of chocolate brown textured card
  • Snippet of white card cut very slightly smaller
  • Kaisercraft image stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Using a Tim Holtz mini blender which (two days previously) had Distress Ink in fired brick on the foam pad, I applied the colour to the white snippet. I then added Distress Ink espresso in to the mix but only skirted round the edges, leaving a lighter area to the middle
  • Paper Artsy splatter (HPXT01) stamped using Brilliance moonlight white ink

A quick and simple ATC which I'll be entering for the following challenges:-
  1. Penny's Paper Crafty - challenge No. 336 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Crafty Creations - challenge No. 345 - ANYTHING GOES
And here comes another ATC ....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in burnt orange and white
  • Katzelkraft (from "Les Jungles" set) image and Wendy Vecchi (for Studio 490) sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour
  • Black Tuskineko glitter gelly roll gel pen used to highlight and doodle a border

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Craft Rocket challenges - challenge No. 39 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Little Miss Muffet - challenge No. 166 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Crafty Addicts - July challenge - SOMETHING HUMOROUS .. well, this lion and bird make me laugh!
  4. 4 Crafty Chicks - challenge No. 358 - STAMPING .. NO digi's

And now for a card ....
