Rebel Stampers ATC Swap - August

Blue & white is the theme for this month's ATC swap on the Rebel Stampers forum. I think it's such a fresh and clean combination and I wanted to reflect this in one of the ATCs. I used my stamp positioner with an Altenew layering stamp, it made positioning the layers so much easier and more accurate. I mounted the flower onto an embossed ATC blank on which I drew some straight lines in 2 shades of blue.

 My second ATC used 3 shades of DI smooshed onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water. I picked up the ink with an ATC blank and when dry I stamped the Rubbadubadoo image. I added some stamped splatters and the gems for tears. The text is stamped with an alphabet wheel (like a library date stamp but with letters). Some punched photo corners finished the ATC.

Alphabet ATC Swap - O for Owl

Well I had an owl stamp and die set so it would have been foolish not to use it. I mounted the kraft diecut on a book page shaded with brushed corduroy and stamped with some flower stamps from Stampin' Up.

Alphabet ATC Swap - O for Odd One Out

A bit of a weird one for my second ATC this month but I managed 3 words all beginning with 'O' - Odd One Out. It was a bit fiddly sticking all those candi dots down but when am I ever going to get the chance to use 35 of them in one go again? Not that it has made a dent in my stock.

Alphabet ATC Swap - O for Oval

I found this month's letter a challenge and spent quite some time trying to find 3 words I could use. My first word is oval. I used some texture paste through a stencil onto a diecut oval and matted it onto a scalloped oval. The profile is a Tim Holtz stamp and I added an ornate corner stamp.

Wordgirl - Before and After

I was looking at the card in my previous post (see above) and felt it looked a bit too plain. I decided it needed some extra embellishment so I added some diecut stars, sequins and gave her some ombré wings:

My First Wordgirl Stamp!

First and probably not my last LOL. I really enjoyed colouring this gorgeous image with marker pens and pencils. This stamp is designed by Trish Latimer and available for sale in her Etsy shop here. I decided to make a quick CAS card by adding some washi tape.
