Holiday Craft Fun!!

Thank goodness for holidays!!!

Going back to full time work has meant that my creative pursuits have been on the back burner for the past ten weeks.

For the past week during the holidays I have had some 'me' time and have been playing for a couple of days with some new ideas and techniques.

Here are some of the ATCs I have completed.

'Fish' has been done using the Watercolour Background technique I learnt in Kelsey's class last week. The stamps are from Fred Mullet, which I have highlighted with some Twinkling H2Os. Unfortunately these photos do not show the iridescent quality to the paints. For some 'bling' I have added some rhinestones to represent bubbles.

'Turn over a new Leaf' is also done with the Watercolour technique, but I have also used another water colour technique on the stamp to highlight the leaf. I have once again used the Twinkling H2Os to add some highlights to the teal coloured areas.

'Beauty' has been done on a tissue paper background whihc has then been sprayed with bronze Glimmer Mist.

The picture is attached with small screw brads, with pearl and German Scrap embelishments added as highlights.

'Free Soul' is on a metallic background with the stamp from Beeswax stamps.

The picture is pretty dark, but links beautifully with the stamp.

Happy Crafting!!

Sonia :-)
