I bought some lovely goodies from Papermaize when I visited Vanessa's shop a few weeks ago. and used them to make this ATC. I love the red, white and black colour scheme of these goodies. I particularly liked the Seven Gypsies ATC overlays - hadn't used these before, but I love them! Can't wait to create some more ATC's using these goodies!

Fairy Tale ATC's

Take a look over on Chriss' blog where she has posted piccies of my fabric and stitched ATC's that I submitted for her fairy tales swap. Thanks to Chriss for showing them. It was the first time I had tried sewing on my ATC's!

Fibres and Fings

This is Leonie's challenge for this week. I started by stamping some swirls on a pink ATC base card. Then I covered it with a piece of pretty fabric which came from the cover of an old notebook. I'd been keeping it ready for some inspiration! I attached the fabric with mini black and white brads. I tied ribbon around the card and threaded on some beads (from my broken bracelet!). I finished the card with a couple of purple buttons. I was really please with the results as I'd had the fabric for ages but not known what to do with it!

Punch Power!

Leonie's challenge this week is to use a ounch on your ATC. I covered a section of a red ATC blank in floral paper and used a heart punch to punch out two shapes down the right hand side. I tied red ribbon through the punched shapes. I tore the word 'power' out of a dictionary I bought from the pound shop and inked around the edges. I stuck this on and used white and red heart shaped punch outs around it, finishing off with some brads and flower embellishments that look punched!
