ATC's ~ Grungy Summer

Hi Crafters,

It's sooo hot here, I'm melting!
I hope you're keeping cool.

For our ATC challenge this month at Charmed Cards and Crafts we were given the theme of...

the letter 'J'

I went with both :o)

I started off by making an inky background with Distress Inks / Oxides on my craft mat and water splattering. When this was dry I embossed one half of the ATC with a Crafters Companion Ivy Leaf embossing folder and inked over the raised parts with more Distress Ink. Now for the fun bit... I had treated myself to some Andy Skinner Mixed Media embossing powders and these are what I used on the leaves and flowers. The word Die is from Tonic and this too was heat embossed using the Andy Skinner Satin Sunset embossing powder. Finally I finished with a bit of stamping...using the Enigma Stamp from Creative Expressions.

Passion For Promarkers Challenge #501 - Flowers

Hi Crafters,

With everyone's gardens blooming right now I thought the theme of FLOWERS would be perfect for our new challenge this week at Passion For Promarkers.

So a nice and easy one for you as I'm sure you all have flower stamps or digi's in your collection and if not then flower papers and embellishments on your project will count as long as you have used your Promarkers somewhere on your creation. Please tell us in your description where you have used your markers.

I've used a previously un-inked stamp from Stampendous for my card today called - 
Pansy Patch. I am determined to get around to using lots of my stash that has been neglected in boxes and drawers ;o)
