Autumn ATC

I've been creating some ATC's as of late and I was so moved by this beautiful image. Something about Cupid I think, being a romantic for sure. So I created an Autumn ATC using the Love Collage Stamps.

Hi Everyone, I'm here today sharing some Cupid and Glimmer Mist love with you. I first sprayed a white piece of card stock with Harvest Orange, Candy Apple Red and Sun Sisters Glimmer Mists. Then I stamped the image using Brown Memento ink and finished the ATC with white gel pen and a little Stickles for more sparkle. Hope you like it

Make sure you check out the beautiful Collage stamps available at I Brake For Stamps. They are truly stunning. You can use my discount code to receive 10% off your order. The code is SAVE10ERIKA. Until next time

Grade 1 here we come

Our little boy is so excited to be going into grade 1. Tonight when I was readin a bedtime story (which we do every night) he asked me what he would learn to do in grade one. My answer was

"You will learn how to read. Then you can read mommy a story and she'll read you a story and repeat repeat repeat"

His smile was so big I thought it might freeze there for a while. How sweet is that!!!???

Today I've got a couple of ATC's to share with you that I created for Gauche Alchemy. The first one is created using the emboss resist technique and a wonderful stamp from About Art Accents. I think they have some of my favorite stamps to date and I just love these silhouette stamps that About Art Accents carries. They are perfect for doing Josephs Coat techniques with. YUMMO!!!

I added a little Pink Parts and Blue Streak mixed media color kit pieces to this one.

Next a bit of a modge podge ATC. This one is full of paper pieces from the Wholey Sheet paper pack. A little

I love creating ATC's Think I'm going to do a ballerina inspired one this week to commemorate our 3 year old daughter starting Ballet. let's all say it together..... AWWWWWW!!!!

Free as a Bird Gauche Challenge

Sometimes I sit and think about the freedom that a flying creature has. Go anywhere, anytime and enjoy the scenery. Unless of course there are 100miles/hour winds and torrential downpours. Then I'll choose legs over wings in a heartbeat.

Gauche Alchemy has a great challenge on right now called "Free as a Bird". Interpret as you will but if you need some inspiration, check out the Gauche Blog.

For my addition to the Gauche Girls projects, I created this plate using a very old worn out trivet. I painted the top with black gesso, then added some Fire Brick crackle paint. To create a really cool effect, when the gesso and paint were still wet, I pressed in some Punchinella. Let that dry completely, then ripped the punchinella outta the paint. You can see two different looks on my project using the same technique.

I used pieces from the Scarlet Fever, Envy Green and Black Out color kits as well as an image from the Winged Things ATC pack

When you've finished your projects, put them into your Flickr gallery or on your blog. Once you are done make sure to leave a comment HERE. Get your "Free as a Bird" projects in for a chance to win some great Gauche goodies. Try saying that 10 times fast...

Bombshell Design Team ATC swap Hop

A little while ago, all the Design Team members of Bombshell Stamps did an ATC swap and today we celebrate that. When I got my envelope back in the mail, I was absolutely FLOORED with the talent that this team has. To be honest, I felt a little like the ugly duckling lol. We all have such different styles and these ATC's are among the most beautiful that I've ever received.

Here is a list of all the participating Bombshells, so check them all out and leave some love along the way.

Here is my Ode to Bombshell using the Butterfly Queen herself.

I used some Glimmer Mist to color the background first, then stamped the spider web from the Tattoo Background set. Added a little fuzzy tail and Devil Queen was born.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure you leave a comment for a chance to win a small gift from me to you.

Now hop on over to Cheryls Blog to see her amazing ATC
