Friday ... and the start of the weekend!

Morning readers,

I'm still wrestling with the pesky flu and, frankly, haven't really felt like doing much of anything. I was all set to simply not post today but ... I was struck with an idea for the ATC below and thought I might as well give it a go. The thing with this flu bug (as I'm sure many will attest) is that you just don't feel up to doing much but, being an ATC, it didn't take concentration for a great length of time! I'm actually quite pleased with him, AND I got to ink more new stash - having recently acquired the Katzelkraft set KTZ212

My Artist Trading Card
And a closer view, to show the colouring
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in white and moss green
  • On the green snippet I stamped my Kaisercraft mini grid and film edge images along with the edge images from Creative Expressions CEC851 ("Inspiring Edges") using Versafine Clair nocturne ink 
  • Using a snippet of white card I stamped my Katzelkraft image (KTZ212) using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour image, copic markers to outline the image, which I then fussy cut out before adhering to my ATC
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology sticker (cut in two), to finish
I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Through The Craft Room Door - February 12th challenge - ANYTHING GOES - 2nd entry
  2. Papercraft Challenges - challenge No. 30 - SOMETHING NEW (my Katzelkraft image)
  3. Tiddly Inks - challenge No. 222 - ATC fun - 2nd entry
  4. Penny's Paper Crafty - challenge No. 417 - ANYTHING GOES
Yesterday, I met up with a pal of mine, for coffee, I took the car despite the  fact it wasn't that far away but .. I was still exhausted by the time I got home - guess it's safe to say ... STILL RECOVERING!

I found out yesterday that I was the re-picked winner over at Creative Knockouts, for their challenge #282, thanks peeps
