ATC Theme Holiday

Suddenly, I felt the urge of getting in touch!
This is my Holiday ATC. Three different cardstock layers make the background: white glitter, silver and dark blue. The last two are speckled with white ink using an old toothbrush (great distressing tool.) The tree garland is made with one of Martha Stewart punches glued to red paper. I really had fun making this ATC!

Bon Voyage! My latest project and newest stamp set

I bought this stamp set in a bookstore during a recent trip to the Northwest. I just fell in love with the Tour Eiffel style, even that I have more than one Tour Eiffel stamp in my collection.
I recycled the corrugated cardboard from the coffee shop painting it with acrylics, color with Copics, and used my hand writing for the sentiment that is a tag cut with a punch, distressed with the same ink as all the other elements. Used one of my Martha Stewart's scallop borders, some black tulle premade card, and voila! the card went to a friend that is retiring to France!

Copic Creations Challenge


After taking a Copics class in Florida, I went back home and found this challenge in the Copic Creations blog.

My Magnolia stamp has shiny boots, and some sparkle in the hair, shiny hat bow, and in the halo around her. I experimented using color pencils, and Copic markers on top of them. For my first real "contrasty" attempt, I am satisfied!

Thank you Sally!
