I played around with my paint dabbers today and mixed some colors on my craft sheet and painted with a foam brush onto a row-house atc. I used Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange for this one. Stamped with honeycomb by Inkastamps and Distressed Flower and Circles from I Brake For Stamps; then inked up the edges of some images I cut out of an Easter postcard with Old Paper distress ink and glued in place. I think it turned out bright and cheery! Punched a bird out of black scraps and glued in place to finish it off.

We started a round robin paperbag journal swap quite a while back on one of my atc groups and they all seemed to just disappear for a long time and have very recently begun to move again. Here is the two page spread I just finished for Vix's book with a "Friendship" theme. It was fun to create something for these books again. I hope it will inspire the rest of the gals to get going on them again!

Here is an atc I did for the Winner Takes all contest in one of my ATC groups. Heather chose "Vintage" as the style she wished to receive. I hope she likes my version. I stamped the image onto the back of packing tape; turned it over and dropped tiny piles of Pearl-Ex colors randomly, rubbed it in with my finger, then matted onto cardstock, added lace and a vintage button with the shank removed and popped up the matted image.

Just playing a little with Tim's new "Canned air" technique. I couldn't possibly be patient enough to wait until my preorder of the new alcohol ink colors arrives, so used the old colors. I will try again once I have the lights and brights sets but it was fun and I like the results. Just overstamped with my only "new" set of Tim's stampsI have right now,as the rest are also preordered and I am very anxious to get them!!!!
