Well she started off pretty........

....but she ended up slightly scary.......

Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed making Christmassy things and presents for other people, but WOOHOOO! it's nice to just make something for the heck of it.

Someone asked me how I get ideas for ATCs in particular..... well, I just start. Usually there's no real plan, maybe an idea of a colour or a stamp I want to use in particular. So, I make a start and things happen. Either the background suggests something, or the stamp, or something lying around on my desk. (It's times like these that I'm glad my desk tends toward the messy side).....

In this case, I wanted something in pretty, soft colours so made a flowery background, then chose one of my beloved Stampotique stamps- did I ever mention how much I LOOOOOVE Stampotique stamps? And, well, you know how it is once those wonderful Stampotique stamps come thing you know, it's all gone kinda weird. Once I spotted the baby themed clear stamps I hadn't put away yet, the diecut wings were pretty obvious! Plus, how about this for serendipity? The little sweet angel words fit almost exactly into a punch I'd never ever used! I just wish I could say I'd planned it.......

Anyone wanna swap?

I'm entering this into the Stampotique Designers blog challenge- to use a punch and a diecut.

Stamps- Stampotique- Karen, Studio G clear, Inkadinkado flower
Inks- Distress Inks in Victorian velvet and Milled lavender, Versafine Onyx black
Stash- HOTP paper,  open weave fabric, black fineliner, pink mosaic gems
