Good to swap.

Since being involved in the UKS ATC trail, I have met some very talented ladies. All of whom have such amazing talents and ideas that it can get quite addictive to keep swapping. So when I spotted this lovely ladies work on her blog http://craftyshe.blogspot.com/ and that SHE (her UKS name) had made some Alice in Wonderland ATCs I immediately wanted to swap. I have said it before and I will say it again that 'they are like mini works of art'. So with this in mind I framed these four together (see above). Good aren't they?

I made Mine by firstly starting with a cereal packet, covered in paper, inked with a couple of Tim Holtz inks then a Paper Artsy diamond background stamped over the top. As I did not have any Alice themed stamps that fitted an ATC, I looked online and then printed, cut out and chalked the images, covering with a layer of matt glaze. A few embellishments and they where finished (see below).
So if you feel like swapping or need a little motivation to get started in ATC's, hop on over now to the ATC Trail at UKS here http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/showthread.php?t=293266. See you there!
