Green & Recycled
This is not a card but a set of 3 ATCs that I have enjoyed making and will serve a couple of purposes
The 1st is I can enter them into the CD Sunday Challenge Blog as the theme this week is Green and/or Recycling – I think!!!
Anyway they are green and somewhat recycled as they were on a waterfall card I made originally but I just didn't like it so stripped it down and now have 3 super atcs.
I have used images from Peerless Designs Hedgehogs Garden Adventures – its a lovely cd for anyone who adores hedgehogs – the artwork really is top class so all credit to Sarah Hallam.
The atcs are a standard size – 3.5 x 2.5 inches or 9 x 6.5 cm.
I now always use heavy card – ie mount board – as that makes all the difference in my opinion.
The backing papers for 2 of the atcs were from a Serif 6x6 paper pad called Picnic in The Park and the 3rd atc I used an off cut of a white sheet I had embossed, a Tim Holtz ink pad was lightly rubbed over to highlight the embossing in green
All the hedgehog toppers were shaped pyramage so look lovely when made up.
I embellished the atcs with pearly doodles and die-cut a butterfly for one, used a butterfly and dragonfly brad on another and the 3rd quite simply have a large With Love banner across it.
So that's it for the entry blog challenge but now I have 3 atcs – anyone out there want these - free – or I will happily swap with you!!!
If no takers they will go in my box of ATCs ready for future swaps.
And thats it for today folks – I haven't been too well since last night so wanted to get this done then its off to bed for me I think!
See you tomorrow
