The Stampman ATC swap

Hi all

Last day of playing until the weekend as I am back at work tomorrow boohoo!
The Stampman has opened up it's ATC swap, this first swaps theme is "wings". It is ages and ages since I made ATC's so I enjoyed making these although my hands are full of ink!!

Basically the inks are the same on all 3, just messed with them in different ways even using bubble wrap. I have used peeled paint and faded jeans distress inks, the red is Adirondack in Cranberry. I used clear Rangers embossing powder and gloss card. I will list the stamps at the bottom of this post.

I am really happy with how summery the colours turned out and I just love butterflies fluttering about the garden, as the theme over on this months Sir Stampalot Challenge is "Lazy Days of Summer" I thought this would be perfect and have you seen the FABBY prize for this months winner??

The quote is one of my favourite ones from Charles Dickens "I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free."

The stamps used are:
PaperArtsy MN27, Artemio - Butterfly Silhouettes, Basic Grey - flutter
