Wicked wednesdays Atc challenge- New Year!
well, I tried going to bed but we seem to be living in the middle of a firework display tonight! they have been going off continually since 7:30pm so I gave up and went out to do some crafting!!
I wasn't in the mood for anything projects too big, feeling kinda lazy tonight!! but then I remembered I have been a bad Lou and not gotten an ATC into Jenn's Wicked Wednesday ATC challenges yet so that was my mission!!! an ATC for my lovely Jenn!!!
Its a new years theme....perfick!!!!! and I had forgotten just how delicious making ATC's is!! Luckily I managed to find my pile of printed Ellie's from SC digi's and trimmed her down to the right size (3.5x2.5 inches) She was just right to sit inside that, phew!!I even dug out my copics for a grungey kind of look and added the year 2012 to the balloons (...in my less than nice handwriting,grrrr!!)
I embossed the edges of my ATC in my cuttlebug with my tiny bubbles embossing folder and gave them a good old distressing treatment with Faded Jeans DI, then I found dome yummy little swirls in my SU tiny tags stamp set and splonked them along the edges with some Frayed Burlap DI.
mmmmmm, this photo actually looks a bit pants so I will take a new one tomorrow, I think I have actually got a great big greasy mark on my lense from taking piccies of Mo yesterday so I really need to clean that up too!!!
happy New Year All!!! off to get a cuppa and a biscuit now before I try and nod off asleep!!
huge hugs Lou xxxx
