This is my first post for 2011 so I would like to wish you all a very HAPPY New Year and I hope 2011 blesses you with health, wealth and happiness!!
The first challenge of 2011 set by Incy Wincy's Guest Designer, Val (who is amazingly talented, just check out her blog), is a challengeing one (lol) of making an ATC. Most people will know what an ATC (Artist Trading Card) is but in case you don't know what on earth I am on about they are mini works of art measuring 2.5" x 3.5" (or 64mm x 89mm) which you are meant to trade with other creators of ATC's (there is a monthly swap over on The Stampman - this months theme is Rhymes & Tales).
This week Aspire to Thrive Children's Charity is sponsoring our challenge and the winner gets an amazing $10 to spend in the store!!!
I have used one of the Mary Helen Sims images for this ATC, coloured it with spun sugar, frayed burlap and antique linen distress inks. The wrinkle distress background is made using tumbled glass and faded jeans.
I just need to finish off the other 2 ATC's then I will add them to The Stampman challenge.
