Challenge time

I thought I would share an ATC with you and I am going to enter it into a couple of challenges. Well, I couldn't resist as they are such wonderful challenges. The first is the lovely Hels On Sunday Stampers. The theme this week is 'GOLD' I have only just made this in time as it finishes on Sunday so hop on over quickly as it's really a good theme & prize. Next is Sir Stampalot This is running for the month of MAY and If you like Tim Holtz you will surly die when you see the prize. The theme this month is 'Butterfly's & Blossoms' and if you have different projects (like a card & ATC) you can enter more than once which I think I may have to ;0)

Here is the close up. I photographed this outside and the sun really picked up on the GM and glossy accents. I inked a normal size ATC with DI's then I stamped with the cogs and punched a hole in to attach the TH sprocket & Needle. Then I made a frame and sprayed GM all over in two contrasting but complementing shades. I stamped a couple of other images and cut them out and added them to the frame and also a lovely flower. I hope you like my ATC, I have really enjoyed all your lovely comments as I have been getting back  into my stride, thank you for taking the time not only to stop by but a special thank you to those lovelies who constantly leave comments, I feel honored. Love Dawn xx.

Items Used:- Stamps, Stampington & Co, The Artistic Stamper and crafty Secrets. Glimmer Mists (GM) Tattered Angels. Distress Inks (DI) Tim Holtz Ranger. Flower, Wild Orchard Crafts.

This is gorgeous. I have never seen an ATC with a frame around it before like this one. Love, love, love it. Isn't it great when you can enter two challenges with one entry? And I'm still drooling over those flowers you made this weekend. Have a joyous Sunday.
