Monthly ATC Swaps for December


The theme for this months ATC swap at the Grind is hands, and I have not managed to create for the theme before, but I did this time. It's great that I came across a bag full of fun foam hands and feet so I figured I could do something this time. I cut watercolour paper to ATC size and glued the foam hands on. These were painted with gesso and when dry they were painted with aqua or pink craft acrilyc paint mixed with white sparkle gel. After the paint was dry I stamped with an alphabet background stamp. The letters are computer generated "die cuts" printed and cut then glued on the cards.

Hi Joanne,
Many thanks for your suggestion of blocking the light coming in through the window. I knew the pictures were lousy! I have tried taking them in the kitchen but it's far too dark in there. One day I will learn more about it from lovely people like you and then you can see the crystals and other fine details.
Merry Christmas!!!!
