Going postal

I didn’t manage to create a Wonderland card for The Altered Alice, but I’d like to enter a non-Alice ATC that does fit the ‘going postal’ theme:

The background was created with Distress Stains.

I’d also like to enter this ATC into the following challenges:

Stamps used

  • Winged man & sentiment: Tim Holtz
  • Script background: Darkroom Door

Vintage cyclist

This week, Think Monday Think ATC wants to see bicycles and My time to craft focuses on hats. This vintage gentleman surely rides an impressive specimen and he’s wearing a stylish hat too.

I created the background using Jennifer McGuire’s acrylic bloc method, for this is the current challenge @ Yahoo Group “Creatief met stempels”. All stamps used are Katzelkraft, except for the script background, which is Darkroom Door.

Focus on a sentiment

Sunday Stampers’ Hels wants to see sentiments this week. Here’s an ATC featuring one of my favourite Tim Holtz sentiment and his notorious umbrella man. The buildings in the background are by Oxford Impressions.

Thanks for looking!

Masculine ATC using scraps

Combining two fun challenges resulted in this masculine ATC, which is entirely made of scraps:

Here’s my pile of scraps :

And here’s a smaller selection of all scraps and backgrounds that I chose from for this ATC:

For the background I used the “Antique wallpaper” technique featured in the Technique Junkie’s June/July 2010 newsletter. The man and the hat  belong to Oxford Impressions’ “Steampunk Element” sheet. The tag was punched out and decorated using Tim Holtz’ “design scrap” stamp. I stamped the letters individually on the tag to form the word “chapeau”.
