My first ATC

Hi Crafty Friends:0)
I hope you've had a lovely week so far? I shall be quite glad when this week is over it hasn't been my best!!!
I made an ATC for the Stampotique Designers Challenge. My little beauty is climbing off the ATC, she wants to get free

 She almost managed too, look off she goes, cheeky monkey LOL
This little one was a delight to make, I stamped her on white card and cut her out, painted her with my Lyra Aquacolours. It's 'Relaxin' !!
She's normally sitting taking it easy but I gave her legs, a bow and a new skirt from 'Gooseneck'  The winder on her back is her umbrella and she was itching to go!

 I used a Crafters Workshop template for the words and highlighted the words 'Beauty' and 'Art' with Perfect Pearls mica powder.


The background is sprayed with Dylusions ink, fabby colours but I'm going to be careful to shield her from the sunshine. remember this card? I was so pleased that it was showcased at Less is more, Oh Yay!!!




Well now it looks rather different, after leaving it on the window sill it's all bleached I'm going to have to paint it again, beware of this effect painty people.


Right I'm off I have so many makes that I'm behind with, I might be creating all night, oooh wouldn't that be fun!!
Thank you for dropping in and check out the Stampotique Designers Challenge there are some lovely ATC's there:0)

Love her, Gay. She's really funky. You have some wonderful ink and die colours, and you always combine them perfectly. I have never seen Dylusions before, but they look amazing...love the gold embossed edge, too x

Love this Gay - I'm afraid I think I'm the only person who doesn't really get Stampotique stamps, think I must be missing something, but this is fabulous...love the background and the gold embossing round the edge is the perfect finishing touch..Sorry you've had a bad week, hope it gets better ! Esther xx

Fantastic ATC Gay, so many different mediums and techniques! As you know I'm not a fan of Stampotique but I love her:) Her legs look as if they are going to move any minute and I love the gold embossing. What a shame about your tulips I hope you can rescue them they were gorgeous:) Didn't we do well that week!

This is a brilliant quirky ATC Gay - love the way the legs are dangling over the edge. Fab. colours, but what a shame about the Dylusions being light-sensitive.
Congrats. on being Showcased (AGAIN)!!!

Hope your week is improving - take care, Sylvia xx

Linda R said...

Oh my goodness girly. What a fabulous ATC. I just love everything about it. But most of all I love the fun colors.

Hugs~

Cath Wilson said...

Gorgeous, Gay - absolutely love everything about this one. Shame about the colours but that's why I much prefer pigment and permanent inks in the long run - they don't fade as all water based inks do and Ranger inks do seem to be the worst!

Gio said...

Oh my! I love it Gay. Such inventive piece, love the colours and those legs outside, brilliant!

Aileen said...
