Fairy ATCs

Good Morning and thank you for dropping by today

First I'd like to give a very warm welcome to Hazel my new follower.  We've just found each other in blogland although we met about eight years ago in an ATC swap.

I only make 4 ATCs each month now for Jo's swap on A Little Piece of Me blogspot

These are the cards I made for the March swap where the theme was Magic.

I dabbed the background with a Ranger pewter paint stain.  It's the only one I have and I bought it as I thought it would work well in the future with my new Robot  stamp which I posted recently here..

Once the pewter was dry I stamped my fairy then added other colours with a baby wipe, rubbed Black Soot distress ink round the sides of the cards and on the bottom to ground the fairy.

I added glitter to the moon with a quickie glue pen a piece of punched leaf to the top and scribbled grass and flowers on the ground area.

The cards were difficult to photograph well because of the reflection from the pewter paint.
I would like to enter my ATCs into the Fab n Funky challenge # 30l  "Winged Things.

  1. Those are beautiful! And they've reminded me, I'm sure I have that stamp somewhere but I don't recall seeing it when I had my big sort out earlier this year. Wonder where it's got to?

  3. Wonderful ATC's Barb love the variation in the density of colour in them, it really shows the effects you can achieve with the same ingredients
