Welcome Home Tag

Well I didn't have a go at another ATC - I just couldn't get into it - so made a tag instead.

The threads are the wrong colour - so I will remove those and find something better - and there is a 'gaping' space beside the couple that could do with a sentiment - so I will search out, type up, and add one there.

Apart from that I quite like the colour combinations.

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.
