Wow, time flies.......... another Stamp Man ATC swap month already!!!

I can't believe it's a month since we started The Stamp Man's ATC swaps!! Where had the time gone? Well whilst we're all waiting for our Wings swaps to arrive (I can't wait, there were some STUNNING entries), it's time to get working on this month's theme, which is.............Time!

My first swap is made with The Stamp Man's Aspects of Design Butterfly Beauties stamp plate.

The background is made using my beloved smacking acetate technique, with lots of different colours of Distress Inks. I'm a big believer in waste not, want not, so if I have some smudges of ink left on my craft mat after ink blending I spritz it with water and dip some ATC backgrounds in. This one was probably dipped in 3 or 4 times over a few weeks.

The butterfly is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and the words are computer generated. I doodled lines around the words and the edges of the ATC then matted onto black card. It needed a lift, so out came the Stickles!

Hope you all feel like joining in, for all the details, take a look here or click on the blinkie in my sidebar.

It has been a bit of a manic week and weekend for me, so hopefully I'll be back into the creating and blogging routine. I need to make lots of swaps for the Docrafts meet next weekend at Luffy (woohoo, looking forward to it!!!!), so must get on.
