The Stampman ATC Swap - Take a letter

Now is it an a or a b or an f or a g? ? Noooo it's a letter!


The Stampman had this fantastic set in the sale a while back and whilst it was a little lovey dovey I just loved those eyes and knew I'd use it for something so bought it any way. 

I stamped part of the image on the card and masked the pen then inked it with two of the new Tim Holtz colours Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge. 
I used a fiskars punch to create a stencil then bleached out the colour from the eyes. A touch of glossy accents to make the eyes shine and the mini letter was complete.

Hope you'll join in the swap, the quality of the ATC's we're receiving is wonderful and they are a great way of developing new ideas from the ones you receive, always an inspiration so come on over and play.

Happy Days

x Michelle

Michelle that is a stunning ATC. I love it. Wild honey and rusty hinge are my favourites at the moment - makes your fingers look like a very heavy smoker though!

This is beautiful Michelle, I love the colours and what a fab idea to use a punch as a stancil. I'm loving playing with bleach at the moment, I'm never quite sure how it will end up x
