Dawnies ATC swap


Morning Campers, Hi de Hi (ho de ho) throw back from 80s TV in UK I used to love that  series, do impressions of Peggy (Sue Pollard) Ted (Paul Shane) and the Welsh one (Ruth Madocks) (what was the characters name?) Was it Gladis? I can't find it on the web on the DVDs but not the character names don't you hate it when that happens ;0) See there I go again off on a tangent lol. 

Any way picked my James up today, we are out all day tommoro so don't know how much if anything I will get done lol so I hope you enjoy these as a wee stop gap. 

It was Gladis Pugh (found it thank you Play.com) lol just bought series 1&2 for £6.99 that 's not much for a walk down memory lane. I love 'The Darling buds of May' been watching them on gold. Catherine Zeta-Jones BEFORE HOLLYWOOD... Couldn't resist it all six series for less than £12 good family, no harm, TV entertainment, Love it. If I want a DVD I always goto Play.com first I only put them down because I have always got great value and fab service. (I know it's not crafty so hope you for give me wafferling for last few min's lol)


You may remember I asked for some ATC swap buddies. Well I got a lovely lady called Petra who wanted to swap so I set the theme of 'Cinema' and we swap 3x ATC each month. this being the 1st one. I have kept one back for my self. I do hope she likes these, any suggestions for what the theme could be for May?

Any way I thought I would also enter a challenge with these as Simon Says theme is 'Movies or something to do with movies' you can't goto the cinema/movies with out a ticket or POPCORN (sweet of course).


Here's a close up, I have used some stamps and then coloured this one with copics to look like the old pop corn packets added some stickles to bling it up a wee bit and then stamped the  ticket and added some sticky cousions and used the same copic colours and stickles.


Not like me but these two are almost the same but I thought looked very different, enough to warrent doing two. I went more with a vintage look and used distresss stickles 'rock candy' understated bling I love it!


Then finally I used the other stamps in the plate and created this. I love the vintage so continued with the distress inks and folded the film real (well they often snaped or melted) what do you think? I hope Petra likes these. I almost feel as though I cheated as the stamps have done so much of the work here. But I didn't want to add ribbon (for a change) or embellies as I thought it would take away from the feel of the theme.

I do hope she likes them. I am happy with how they look and they are even better IRL but as I said I do feel like the stamps did most of the work. What do you think? did I cheat? Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Tim Holtz stamps Stampers Annonymous. Distress Inks & Stickles also stickles by Ranger.

Think these fit the theme very nicely! Reminds me of those "Let's go out to the Lobby and have ourselves a snack" teasers before each movie! Maybe May Flowers and then June weddings?

These are gorgeous! I like the vintage feel to them combined with the popcorn outlines in the background! The stickles work is neat too.

Thanks so much for entering the Simon Says Stamps Challenge!!!
