IOS challenge

The challenge on IOS this week is your first ATC that you made...................ok should be easy enough not having to do any work........... infact ...but not that easy for me. !!!

I first go involved making ATCs in 2004 and most of the ATCs I made I never scanned as I didn't have a scanner and just got swapped out.

So here is one that I made maybe early 2006 that I think is adapt for the month of DECEMBER.

The background is faux wood, a vintage image, a stickon flower and a beaded Tiara made by me.

ATC for IOS ( Italy on sunday). Thought I may as well participate for once, I take part in all the other online challenges with lots of participants, here there are way less so I thought it's only fair!!! This is an old ATC I made for an Australian friend last year but I liked the theme SOGNI / DREAMS for IOS and the art that was made by the designer of the week
Rubber stamps used by cherrypie stamps and firecracker design, watercolours, vintage wallpaper and paperscrapbooking flowers...which I don't really like so why I used them here I'll never know!!!!
Sorry gals that it's not a freshly arted one but I'm too tied up in the world of mixed media swaps and courses across the seas

TMTA challenge

This week's Think Monday Think ATC challenge is STONE, here's my contribution.
The background I've done like a faux leather and the image is from artichix which I gessoed over.
Had to work very quick on this as it's so hot here all my materials were drying up on me, especially the can see that the words I stuck on and they dried so quick I couldn't put them striaght.......aarrgh.
