These are the Easter ATCs I made for a swap I'm in on the SS Reflections yahoo group. All three are done on Stardreams Chiara paper, sparkly and very pretty.
The first one is egg shaped on a pretty peach paper. I used an SU stamp, Morning Marigold ink, and clear detail embossing powder. The lid to the egg is hinged and of course you can see the little chick. I got this idea from another group I'm on, The Artists' Circle. They did an ATC workshop last month that I didn't participate in, and they did egg shaped ATCs. I had to do one for Cindy. I think these are so adorable, and when I found the little chick, I knew it belonged in this ATC.
This ATC background was put through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug folder and then I used a chalk applicator to put inks on the flower and leaves. I got the little girl from a Dover clip art book. I edged everything with gold marker, added ribbon and a flower charm, and ta-da! Easy, but kinda cute too. I like the background best and it's kind of too bad I had to cover some of it up wiht an image. The little girl is really cute, though, holding her flower basket and dressed in pink and yellow. Very Easter-y. Not at all like me.
This ATC was done with a background stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. I stamped with Versamark and added Kiwi Perfect Pearls. A few rose and butterfly stickers, some ribbon and some green bling, and again, a simple but cute ATC. The background shimmers. I didn't want to cover too much of it up.
I've still got a sick child (Dylan) and interestingly enough, I got an email from someone saying they represent a major pharmaceutical company, urging me to make sure we all get flu shots, and telling me I'm welcome to link to a flu information site from my blog. I feel a tad creeped out by the fact that someone trolled the web, saw that my family was sick, and used it to market their medical products to me. How exploitative and just creepy. Really friggin' creepy.
