Art Deco Atc's

I made these 3 Art Deco atc's for a swap that I was in earlier in the year, fun to do !!!!
the backgrounds are all made using glimmer mists which are then stamped, gold leaf pen, images, feathers, flat backed stones, tiny pearls, ascent beads, gold filigrees and Dresden foil were all used :-)

Mail art, Decorated Envelopes

I recently decorated some envelopes for a swap in the vintage atc UK group  that I belong to, we decorate 6 envies, 3 each of 2 designs  when finished these get swapped out by Ali, the group mum, the first ones are Cavallini style and  Oriental,

these are all made using inks, acrylic paints, water colour paints, glimmer mists, stamping, paper napkins, images, used postage stamps and anything that I can find :-)

All pictures show front and back of envelopes, I hope that you like them :-)

Lock and Key Atc's

Here are another set of 4 atcs made for a group swap, the background papers are made with distress inks, stamped with Mona, the lock and keys are also stamped onto card  cutout and attached with tiny brads, I found it awkward to cut out the keyhole in the lock with a scalpel but think that it was worth it, hope that the girls liked these !!!!!

Tim Holtz

I was recently in a group swap for atc's made using at least one Tim Holtz product, there wasn't  a theme for this one just the use of his stuff, distress inks for the backgrounds  and I used a couple of his stamps, hope to get my swap returns today ??????
