Coming, Ready or Not!

We have just has the school half term holidays here - but you would never know it!

It made me think of school holidays in the 50's and what we used to get up too.

I haven't made any ATC's for ages - but now I have a free supply of mount board off - cuts I can play to my hearts content.

I scanned this in so the colours are not quite true.

This little girl is playing 'Hide and Seek'

I have painted it with dark peat, over stamped with dark brown, and the little girl is painted in peat and aquamarine.

The numbers of course are embossed to make them stand out - which does not show up in the scan

The screen image is larger than the actual size of the ATC - well it is on my screen!

I think I might try out some different techniques on ATC size pieces of mountboard - and keep them to refer too.

Fab ATC! The little girl image is so sweet and the numbers really make it easy to imagine her getting ready to shout "Coming to get you!"

I love this nostalgic atc being a girl of the fifties myself!

I have phases making atc's- think I might start up again. Atc's to me have always been a little tricky due to the size restriction.

More great work Lottie, and a beautiful image to have used.

Aww - what a cutie!

Lovely theme and great interpretation and yes, I can fully relate to this little girl.

I love this one Lottie, it reminds me of my childhood too (if I can remember that far back!)
