Evening Bloggers! I know it has been a while since my last post and I PROMISE an updated pic of my Jumbo EZer ribbon purse will be the next post up...but I FINALLY got my crafting mojo back AND have received my replacement Cricut...so I am back in business! I wanted share my latest ATC creation I made for an ATC Swap that I am a part of over at the Scrap Shack. As part of the swap each month we each take a turn picking a theme...for July, Scrap Shack Design Team Member Lyn chose the theme Skulls and Flowers. I must admit that at first I was intimidated with the theme...I was like uhhhh hmmm...but as I started thinking on it, an idea formed and here is the fruits of my labor! I am so happy with how my ATCs came out! I did a number of techniques on these...first I cut the base skull/tombstone out of acetate and inked them using alcohol inks...MY FIRST TIME using acetate and alcohol inks and I LOVE it!! Anywho...my idea was to make my ATCs to look like a tombstone with a skull on top and have a girl kneeling at the base of it putting flowers down... I used a number of Cricut carts for this, I used "A Childs Year" for the kneeling girl (she actually had a basket in her hand...but I cut it off). Storybook for the "RIP" words which you can't see from the pic because of the girls head, I used George and Basic Shapes for the tombstone. I am not sure where I cut the skulls and the grass and flowers from...I think the grass and flowers were from Plaintain School book.
ANYWAY...my ATC is titled...Remembrance...ENJOY!!
Until next time! Have a great night and happy crafting!
