Yesterday the girls came over for a scrapbook day at my house. I even had two nights of sleep over guests for the full weekend party. I think we all enjoyed ourselves.
I was supposed to continue working on Christmas presents and I did work on the family ones just a bit but got to the place where I needed pictures. Just wasn't feeling it so started digging through my stamps. I have a set of four that are the exact size needed for ATC's. I've never tried an ATC but being a book addict I have one on that very subject, Artist Trading Card Workshop by Bernie Berlin. I only completed two but I enjoyed the creative process and I really like the small canvas for trying out things. As I was making them I kept thinking how easy it would be to start over if I didn't like it. I didn't do as many layers as I would eventually like to try but I like how they turned out.
This first one I stamped and embossed the image and then blended pearlized stamp inks and then embellished it.
