ATC Loved up!


Afternoon and I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. I have missed making my ATCs . So I thought I would have a go at making a couple and these will also come in handy for Feb. to put on a card, what do you think?


I love playing with the bottle tops, don't know why but the glossy accents didn't dry clear this time. You can click on the photos to have a look in more detail if you like. You know how I love the Paris/ French theme it's here again ha ha. How did I do it? The bottle top is crushed coloured with alcohol inks and then I take an image or text punch it out and then add it and I placed it in the middle of this wonderful butterfly and some stickles really high lights the points I wanted to really well.


The main stamps are Eco stamps very RECYCLE conscious at the moment well I even used bottle tops and pain chips too! lol The stamps are super to work with and are available from The Altered Element  in fact you can find quite a few Eco products here, go have a nosey if you like :0). This is really a very simple ATC but I do love to high light things some times and just re stamping the image and punching it out to add  spot light pieces works really well I think. I hope you like these and you get some crafting done this week. Love Dawn xx

Don't forget my £20 Altered Element voucher that's up for grabs for having 200 followers running until the 7th Nov. see my side bar for more details.

Both ATCs are fab! It's strange the glossy accents didn't dry clear, but it's still a lovely effect! I like the highlighting effect on the other one too - very clever and effective x

What more could anyone ask for besides a used bottle cap and paint chip samples. Great way to recycle! And I love that stamping technique with the circles, too. I may have to try that, even though I'm not a stamper. Love these a LOT!!
