WOYWW #90

I just love participating in WOYWW. I try to visit everyone else. I am NEVER successful. I usually will leave some love, but sometimes my boss will walk by my office, or the kids are trying to rip each others heads off, you know how it goes.....

Anyway, what I love is the variety of projects to be found. I marvel at the creativity out there. And usually find a thing or two (or twenty) that makes me say, "I want to make something like that".



This week finds my workdesk (not sure why it's called WORKDESK, because it doesn't feel like work. it's a joy to be here. should be my JOYDESK) with ATC's upon it. I had a piece (6x6 inches) of white cardstock, and some new (to me) stamps. So I started playing. I created a background with Distress Ink smushed onto the mat and sprayed with water, then dragged the paper through it. It was fun. Then I just started stamping onto the 6x6 piece. When I liked the look of it, I cut it into 4 ATC's and 1 inchie.
Like this:

You can see the inchie on one of the ATC's. then I started to embellish each ATC.


It's a fun way to make a series of ATC's without having them turn out identical.

with a TON of inspiration,

I love these; very clever idea to cut them out and get an inchie too. Also, the colors you smushed and used are wonderful - rich and they set a great mood. What a gorgeous ATC set you have going here - I think I know what they're going to be used for - heh heh heh...
