Welcome to another lazy Monday!


Many of my regular readers and/or followers will know that I exchange ATC's with a buddy on the Isle of Skye and this year we are going with monthly themes to our ATC's - this one's for October's "Masculine" theme ...... cue motorbike!

Materials used:-
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in Kraft, navy and white
  • Using a Tim Holtz mini blending tool I applied Distress Inks: tumbled glass and hickory smoke
  • Visible Image mini flourish (a Craft Stamper freebie) stamped around the outer edge of the ATC using Memento London fog ink
  • Creative Expressions stylised "tyre tread" stamped using Memento London fog ink
  • Unknown manufacturers motorcycle image (it's unmounted rubber and at least ten years old - my memory's good .. but not quite THAT good!) stamped using Versafinne onyx black ink
  • Creative Expressions "No.1" image stamped using Versafine smokey grey ink
  • Black "S" thickness pitt pen used to doodle a border on the Kraft layer
