Hi Everyone!

Thanks for looking at all my cards! My Forever Friends card is a bit inky and distressed because I had all my messy goodies out yesterday because I made these ATCs for a swap with my friend She who is the queen of inky ATCs, I haven't had a go at this kind of crafting for ages so I really enjoyed it...

My favourite is the green one, I used a CleverCut stamp, stamped in clear distress ink, then embossed with white embossing powder, dragged over Adirondack 'Lettuce' ink, stamped the script in same ink and then coloured in the image with ProMarkers (I might make myself one of these lol!!)

So thanks for looking once again!! I'm off to make more challenge cards and get a few 'Happy Mail' packages in the post (including these ATCs!!)

Love Becky xx

Hi Becky, you've been busy! Fabulous cards, I love the papers you use, especially loving the WOJ card thanks for entering it in the Charisma Cardz challenge. Great atc's I could never achieve that sort of look when I used to make them, very effective! Also loved the card in the previous post using the Pollycraft freebie image, it's soooo sweet love the effect you gave it.
