She believe she could

this project started off like this... stamping and cutting out cute little clouds in shades of blue and grey.

And it ended up like this, with a set of 3 ATCs.

The background was one of several I'd made with inks and some background stamping in blues and oranges and yellow. I cut some of the clouds in half and used them to look like they were going off the page. It's a good trick for making things go a bit further.

I added the Stampotique image and glittered her wings, then stamped out the words. It always takes a long time to stmap them out, and I can't get them straight, so I go for the wonky typewriter look every time. I did my usual trick of outlining in black and white pens.

I was so pleased with them, that I made a larger plaque for my desk. I used the thick card back from a todo list/notepad I'd used up. I enjoyed tucking the little clours half beghind things so that it looks like the words and the fairy are resting on them.

The sun/halo was done by masking off using a circle punch and a post it note- the sticy on the post it keeps the circle in place- top tip! I sponged orange ink round it.

I made little leaves using some offcuts from the background- I just drew the leaves on and cut them out. Simple! OOh, look at the chickenwire stamp in this photo, that's fab.

I miss making ATCs, I used to make so many. I'm not sure I'm ready to part with these- but if anyone wants to swap get in touch, I'm sure I can manage it.

Thanks for looking!
