August & September ATCs


Whoa its been over a month since my last post (sounds like confession) my excuse is that we have bought a house in Wales and inbetween decorating our house here in oxfordshire (ready to sell) and going to Wales at the weekends (with no internet!!!) there is little time for anything else.
I have managed to do a bit of crafting (I think I would go mad otherwise) but its finding time to blog.......
Anyhoo the ATC for August was Theater and unfortunatly I didn't have any stamps so had to resort to the internet.  My very favourite ballet is Swan Lake so I decided to use that as my theme.

Not my usual thing but I was happy with the outcome.
However I did better with Septembers ATC which was favourite technique, which for me is stamping with a bit of masking.

 I used one of my fave stamps the lovely Dasher and the sentiment from Comtempo Christmas.  I also used some of the new In Colours Pool Party and Island Indigo really lush....  The pattern was created using the new lace punch. I punched out a border and then used it as a stencil using a dauber and craft ink created the pattern.  I added dazzling diamonds to give it a bit of glitz and voila... 
I am loving the new in colours...
Hope you like and thanks for stopping by..... I hope to be back tomorrow to share some of the things from the Regional training I went to on Saturday... Ta Tar for now...
