Take Time For May ATCs





I have been doing more work on the danglies for The Byhand Artists Danglie Swap, but on Saturday I took play time for some ATCs. The first "Take Time 1" is a quote stamp on parchment cardstock. The whole stamp was too long for an ATC so I just used the quote part and did a torn edge at the bottom, rubbed with Antique Linen Distress Ink. This was layered on light purple cardstock cut with decorative scissors and then layered on dark purple cardstock. I added a small paper flower with a silver brad. The second one "Take Time 2" was done the same way but with a green flower snap added to the bottom corner.
The third and fourth ATC are done on natural coloured chipboard. The third has a quote stamp " Precious Friend" from Kolette Hall, heart and cherish stamps from Quietfire Design in brown Stazon ink, drain plugs used to stamp circles in forest pigment ink and flourishes in cocoa pigment ink. And the last "Altered Art Journey 1" is all done with stamps from Quietfire Design in brown Stazon ink. Now I'm going to do a little work in the yard and then go string beads on more danglies.
