A Year of ATCs?- Day 179

If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up:

Santa's Beach

Today's ATC uses this image:

I printed the image ATC sized and coloured it with Zig real brush pens.
I then cut it out with a die from the Tonic ATC collection.
The background is a small piece of card painted with acrylic paints.
Finalli I added some small plastic embellishments.

Happy Christmas in almost July!!

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #248

Here's my card for the Holiday Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More

I started with a red card blank and then added rectangles of green and white to form layers as shown. I used the white cards to 'triple stamp' the holly leaves and coloured them with a Zig real brush pen. The holly stamp and sentiment are from Happy Little Stampers.
I finally added gems for the holly berries.

Hope you will enter the Challenge!

Happy Crafting!

My plan is to use this on an ATC next...

You could use this for the Challenge - but your image is free will find all the images I have used in the SHOP

I have used Holly


Just a simple card today... I printed the image using Word and a blue saturation.
I then added extra colour using Zig real brush pens.

I then used a variety of stitched dies to cut the layers.
 The sentiment is a stamp from Happy Little Stampers using one of the Zig pens to add colour.
I used a holly punch on this sentiment strip.

Happy Christmas in July!!

A Year of ATCs? - Day 178

Today I am up to Day 178 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

Today's ATC uses an image from Limited Runs again and is a similar design to yesterday's.

The image is the Smiling Monster from the Limited Runs Facebook Group
Progressive Challenge #5!

Using Serif Craft Artist 2, I combined the image with a sunburst from 
Decosse's Dynamite Doodles
I printed this out and added more colour using Promarkers.
I doodled lines on the sun with a fineliner to make it stand out a little more.

I used two of the Tonic ATC Collection dies to cut the image and a blue background.
I then added glossy accents on the eyes and scribbled on the sentiment.

I will also link it to the Limited Runs Facebook Group Progressive Challenge #5

Happy Crafting!
