Over on the PaperPlay forum I have joined an ATC swap and Tag swap. Here are my efforts:
These are my ATCs. As you can see the theme was "numbers". For the first one I just ran the ATC through a cuttlebug numbers folder, coloured it with distress inks and dry brushed Inka Gold over it. The flower in the corner are three from my stash.
The middle one is foil wrapped around the ATC and run through the big shot with a Tim Bingo folder. I tore off the "free" bit and coloured it with Stazon Inks (a technique taught by the wonder Sue Roddis). The hearts were punched from metal and coloured with Stazon - another Sue jobby! The third one is a PaperArtsy stamp stamped with Stazon onto metal, embossed from the back side and the numbers edged with a metal thingy tool. The ATC itself was stamped with the same stamp with distress inks.
The TAGS are covered with paper from a pad free with a mag last month. The "flower" on the first one is cut from a piece of vintagy lace with a flat back pearl in the middle. The charms are from The Big Bead Boutique which is full of vintage charm! The right hand one is using the same paper and again flowers cut from vintagy lace. The flower is also from that place with loads of vintagy charm!
I am afraid my mojo slightly left me whilst doing these but I think I may have got away with it!
Thanks for stopping by peeps and I really do hope my fellow swapees like their swaps.
