Still working on ATCs

I'm still working on ATCs, and I keep getting side tracked. I thought I'd be done by now with the first set for the swap I'm in, but oh no, I keep coming up with a different idea. I've got enough pieces of things started to probably make a dozen sets of ATCs!

I thought I'd show off some of the other cards I've made in the last month. These two are cards I made for the April CHF yahoo group challenge. I used SU! Cameo Coral paper and ink and a yellow SU ink.

The wings are made from Fantasy Film, as the challenge required. I colored the fairy with Prismacolors and Gamsol. The stars that are easy to see were colored in with a Sakura Star Dust pen. The stars that are just sort of glowing have Perfect Pearls on them. Brads are from Ms. I love those brads! The chipboard sentiment says "Lovely" and it's from K and Co. The "fiber" is just hairy yarn. I have tons of that yarn, and I think it looks really neat on cards. Oh, and the piece the fairy is mounted on is done with the Brayered Madras technique from Technique Junkies newsletter, not sure which one, but I'll find out and edit the post when I do.

The Fantasy Film is Watermelon. The way it's used is take a few layers of it (you get lots of it in a pack), ink the image with permanent ink (I use Stazon), put a piece of copy paper over it and iron it for a few seconds. It hardens and then the image can be cut out. Fantasy Film is a booger to deal with before it's ironed. It is flimsy, as film tends to be, and it sticks to everything due to static. Once its been ironed, it is so easy to handle.

This card is done in pink. Pretty much all the same stuff as above, except
with pinks and Starburst Metallics paper as a base. The white CS that the fairy is stamped on is SU! Whisper White. The pink is Bazzill.

I love fairies and fantasy. They go so well with sparkles!

It's been a long day. My husband has been working nights this week. Last night was his last night working nights. Thank goodness! I had a massage in the afternoon, and my muscles are aching and my head hurts. I should be in bed, but I have the creative urge and I have to answer that call. What an obsession!

I love your work. I live in Belgium and do you know, we have a really princess Mathilda here? She's our future queen.
