3 ATCs

I have been busy making ATCs this week. The subject for this weeks mingle in my Google group , altered designs, was Old people and so I made my "wise woman" ATC to be swapped. Then there was a competition for a vintage ATC in the same group which I thought I would ave a go at and produced the "vintage style " ATC for that. The third is one I have made from some of the Artchicks kit I sent for from the States.

Nephews Birthday card

It was my youngest nephews Birthday on Monday. As he is mad keen on all sorts of Sci-fi but loves Lego Star wars I managed to find some great images on Google images and made him this card, which he loved !

The J challenge was to use journaling in your piece or some sort of words. So here it is, image from Google images, I just love the way he is sat holding the crown!

Foot Card

I actually get my stitched out of my ankle tomorrow!!! Almost 3 weeks with my foot up! Some how I don't think it will end here, it still has a long way to go but it will be one step to towards the end, thank god for my love of cutting and sticking stuff as my Hubby calls it!

So I have to go back to the hospital and see my consultant Mr Harries so I thought I would make him an appropriate card.

and this one

Beach Babes altered book

I had begun this altered book months ago but then it had been put aside to collect more things together so when I wanted something small to work on on my lap it fitted the bill perfectly.I had already prepared the book and done the cover by using a transfer technique with a piece of 12x12 paper and then added some gesso to give it the washed look, so all that was needed was to do the inside.Because I was on the settee I didn't want to use paints so all the backgrounds are done either using H2o's, watercolours with a water brush or my new fave toy my water soluble wax crayons. Well here it is

Lap work

For the past week and a bit I have been stuck on the settee with my foot up after an op on my ankle. Of course I had to have some art to do and ATCs, Moos and my altered book fitted the bill perfectly. So here are a couple of ATC I have done to fit the "Think Monday think ATC " website challenges, the first was a ticket challenge and the second a stone one. A bit limited as to what I could use being away from my craft room but it is keeping me sane !!
