Ladies In Love

Hello every one, I hope you had a wonderful break. Michael and I were in Chester for the day yesterday and boy did I get some goodies. But for now lets concentrate on these ATCs ATC swap 'till you drop It's vintage for the month of April I had to join in, I have called these ATCs 'Ladies in Love' so many posabilities but this is what I went for in the end. I do hope you like them, as always 4 are for swaps and I get to keep one. I am still waiting for last months Fairy garden inspired ones to arrive yet, something to look forward to in the post. I thought I would enter a challenge with these too. The Sunday stamper this week it 'Lace' one of these ATCs has lace on. and at SSIC The theme is love or something that symbolises love.


Here is a bit of a closer look at the top row. These were made by having an old book tearing some pages out , then using tape to stick and tear off the writing, then attaching to ATC card stock  inked, then some DP also torn and attached. They all have the same stamp on which is 'Amour' definition. Some are  inked a more tonal  colour with the paper but you can see them IRL. I also printed off the images from various places although I don't know who. When you down load there is nothing on the title to let you know where there from. However, the middle one here is from Craft Stamper as their name is on the image. The others will be from the freebie sites I recommend on my side bar.


Here are the top two closer. Every time I use the DI from Tim I love them more and more they are truly wonderful colours, especially for this kind of vintage although I do use them for everything lol. The images are truly stunning and I thank the person/persons that take the time to give these beautiful things for all us artist to use. Thank you to you, and to my visitors who are such a wonderful support to me. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:-  Stamps, Prima & ? (amour stamp) DP, Basic Grey, K&Co and other various (stash scraps) Inks, Ranger Tim Holtz. Lace, Orchard crafts, Button and gem stash. Images craft stamper, Vintagestampers freebies & various others.

I love your Ladies in Love! Really clever use of backgrounds, image and embellishments. If I wish hard enough I hope I might get one........

I'm gonna put mine on later - small ink malfunction to sort out first! (what is they say about a bad craftsman blaming his tools....?)
